I've started making a habit of not checking the weather, instead just getting on the bike and dealing with whatever comes up. So it was a bit of a surprise to me when I left work that it was wet. It was beautiful, though a bit chilly, in the morning, so my brain assumed those rain like noises I was hearing during the day were traffic or something. Turns out the sound was rain.

D: 35.8km
A: 310m

It seems most people do check the weather, as it was just Gav and I out for a roll in the "a group". It was good to see Meg is back on the bike, sporting a brand new, dirty great big scar on her knee.

In an act that can only be described as "one of the stupidest things I've done on a bike", we decided to ride up a massive drain.... while it was raining. It kinda freaked me out, in fact, lets remove the word kinda. It freaked me out. 3-4km of being underground is just not right.

D: 22.7km
A: 90m

PMPW: 91kg

Cam: We were "just going to have a look", and them um, we kinda just kept going.

I would like to re-iterate: "one of the stupidest things I've done on a bike".

Let's do it again on a dry night though. Sounds like the kind a thing that would make me feel like a kid again!
