    I hate New England Weather

    This weather sucks. All I want to do is go out and ride.

    Even getting on the rain bike is losing its appeal.... I'm sitting here READING about biking, when I should be OUT THERE. Forecast (at least in Eastern MA) for tommorrow? More rain. Wednesday? MORE RAIN!!!
    Just ride.

    forecast both days is "occasional showers." Probably dry most of the time.

    What zac said.

    Seattle just went 29 days without measurable precip. Finally got rain this weekend. This winter was a different story--cold, wet, and endless.

    Went for a ride Sunday in the rain. I usually mountain bike in that weather, this was my first time on the road in rain. Holy crap! It gets slick and braking sucks. Went buzzing through a four way, albeit quiet, intersection. I slid right thru, couldn't stop and I believe my rear wheel was almost ahead of the front wheel. That was a rush.

    Well I went out for a ride today. I have to say, it is just not worth it.

    I agree New England weather sucks. I went it riding in the rain yesterday day though. I soaked 2 pairs of clothes, but I had fun, minus being wet and cold. Today was a little rainy but not as bad. Going down steep hills like in downtown Providence is a little scary when you are going 40+ with wet roads, and traffic.

    rain..it's just h20

    Rode the Trek Across Maine this past weekend and experienced with full apreciation what riding in the rain was all about. On top of it I was camping. I've ridden two days this week while misting/rain and some fog. I do get more concerned about visibility than water so I use lights. My front light went dead yesterday on the ride so I had to cut it short. Keep your chain oiled and ride the bike, better than looking or reading about it although reading is great.
