Maybe if we all sing the 'rain, rain go away song' in unison, we can get it to stop. After my last ride last Thursday, parked the bike in the garage the next day there was a puddle under it and it wasn't from the rain, looks like I have a water pump job in my future.

We could use a little rain here. Not 2 days though.

We've had so much rain, starting off with tornadoes and thunderstorms that dumped six inches of rain in 30 minutes on Monday, causing massive flooding. This was the local Metroparks in my town Tuesday. There should be no water visible in any of these pictures - it's a grassy park, not a lake!

Good time to do some general maintenance?!?

I've been working on tires, brakes, lube, etc while the weather is not cooperating. This way when the weather finally decides to break for good... I can just ride. :roll:

I really can't complain, last (long) weekend was glorious, sunny, not too hot. Looks like this weekend will be the same.

I am in B C and the weather this weekend is awesome! Went for a ride with friends yesterday and covered approx 200kms. Lots of twisty road and excellent weather! What could be better?
