View Full Version : Grateful for today's rain

The rain meant the W&OD trail was mostly empty in the afternoon. My ride back home from Purcellville was smooth and low-stress. No comparison to what the crowds and kids and dogs are normally like on a holiday afternoon.

BTW did my first ever century today! W&OD end to end and back, plus a couple miles at either end to fill out to an even 100. I normally don't ride in the rain but didn't want to give up on my plan for today. I'm super glad I went. The morning was cool and pleasant. In the afternoon I got drenched but was never cold.

Congratulations! Hard core in such a downpour!
