It took me awhile to get ready to go, funnier because I don't even have the kiddos to slow me down. By the time I left the house on the Mundo, it was raining. Real rain, too, like Portland. A third of the way, it began dumping. Pouring rain doesn't happen very often in Sacramento. You can tell by the number of people wearing jeans and Uggs. We don't know what to do when it rains! I was luckily wearing a pair of leggings, nylon pants, and rain pants with a rain jacket over my fleece jacket and scarf. Unfortunately, I hadn't planned my shoes very well because I was hoping to get some rain boots as one of my errands. My right sock soaked through first, my left shortly after. My gloves were useless soon, too. I love riding in the rain because eventually, you're as wet as you can get and nothing else matters. Getting off the bike, however, I started to get cold. Thankfully, Costco was nice and warm. I wandered around eating as many samples as I could to help reenergize.
Then, I finally wrenched the wreath out of the giant box.
After getting home, changing out of my soaked clothes, and resting a bit, I hopped on the BionX and rode off to do some home visits for my exchange student program. The BionX was a great relief to have a nice, relaxing ride after today's craziness. It also has the best lights. Another crisp, dry night ride--my favorite! The fun light displays made it even better.
