Another rainy day and another chance to see if the fun of cycling is worth getting wet.
- It was a soft day, gentle rain, calm winds and not cold.
- I wasn't commuting and so faced no time pressure.
- The experience is still novel for me.
I think the best part is the solitude. I rode maybe 11 miles and saw two other cyclists and two runners. Company was provided by a covey of quail, a dole of doves, a rafter of turkeys and a tiding of magpies.
Plus, when it's raining, anyplace can look like Ireland. Here's a few seconds of the ride, featuring the turkeys and a wonderfully quiet spot along the American River.
