The ride home from work last night was pretty miserable. It rained all day; not a sporadic, hard, pounding rain, but a constant, light, rain with a wind. The rain on the ride home was more of the same. It wasn’t the hardest rain that I’ve ever ridden, nor was it the coldest or windiest. For whatever reason though, it was miserable. I’m pretty sure that it washed most if not all the lubrication off nearly every part of my bike. Even my brake levers were stiff this morning. Of course, the forecast called for a chance of showers this morning, so I didn’t lube up my bike last night because I didn’t want all the lube to wash off again. Since I didn’t lube the bike, though, the day was sunny and warm this morning. Sometimes you just can’t win.
