I've never felt like getting into the shower made me drier. It rained just a little on today's ride.
Took part in the Council-organised Round 50. This is first in a series of four rides, culminating in the Hell O' the North.
Felt ok going round, though the big tyres are very draggy obviously, despite the rain.
I think my Brooks saddle might have given up after getting so wet, so the 'wings' stuck out a bit far, leading to some unfortunate chaffing. I might need to get the drill and a shoe lace out and tie the saddle to tighten things up a bit.
