First ride of the year

Even though my first ride of 2007 was a standard commute to work, it was not by any means routine. The temperature was a balmy 54 degrees. The morning half of the commute was quite nice as it was warm and dry. Plus the delightful sounds of Rodrigo y Gabriela graced my ears via the magic of iPod. The return trip was quite different however. It was unseasonably warm but there was a strong steady rain the entire 7.5 miles between work and home. I am still amazed at how insignificant rain becomes when you are well prepared and “geared-up” for the weather. No iPod music on the way home. The sloshing of car tires over drenched pavement provides a strangely hypnotic form of music.
