April Showers, you betcha
We've had a LOT of rain in west Michigan the past few days. Hard rain. Driving rain. Rain accompanied with thunder and lightning. The good news is that makes the lawn green and the flowers bloom. The bad news is it makes it hard to get out and ride. Now I'll ride in the rain; see last Sunday's team ride as exhibit A. But I will not ride in a thunderstorm or when it's raining sideways. But between rainstorms I did manage to get out a couple of times, once Friday morning and then again tonight. 34 miles altogether. So the mileage is coming slow right now, but with the weather improving so will the riding.
