It’s March, which means it must be raining. The big rain isn’t supposed to hit till overnight, so this morning, despite a steady drizzle, I was able to squeeze in one last ride before Spring Break. I wore rain gear over a long sleeve jersey and cycling pants. At long last, I was able to switch back to clipless pedals. The timing was perfect.. last night’s rain washed the last of the snow off the park access road, and I only had to dismount to get past the gate. And neoprene shoe covers do a much better job keeping my feet dry in rain than hiking boots. I highly recommend the Performance brand shoe covers. Get the ones with the rubber soles, and order two sizes larger than your normal shoe size. I wear size 11 cycling shoes, and the size 13 shoe covers fit perfectly.
This is my last day in the office, and therefore my last bike commute, until Tuesday, March 23. If the weather cooperates, I hope to get a couple of rides in next week, though.
