with a day of heavy rain forecast for 0830 onwards I woke up and got straight into cycling stuff and out the door by 0700 in an effort to beat the downpour. Not knowing exactly when the rain would start i went as hard as i could to cram a decent ride in, i chose a route with a lot of climbing and i was about 3 miles from home when moisture began to fall from the sky. It was then a sprinnt to get home before it got heavier. I just made it with a slight dampness rather than a soaking. I could then feel smug the rest of the day watching the rain from the comfort of home.
