April showers… April 3, 2009

Posted by goirishgorebels in General.

We’ve all heard the phrase “April showers bring May flowers”, well it brings a headache when you want to ride.  I feel bad about being happy when soccer gets cancelled, but today was one of those days.  Brianna had her game cancelled and Abby had practice cancelled because of the rain earlier in the day.  By the time I got off work, the roads were dry enough, so I had to take the opportunity to get a ride in today. 

I had a plan to ride up Chambers Chapel over to Davies then to Canada road to Memphis-Arlington then home.  When I got to Chambers Chapel and Hwy 64, the clouds started to drop some rain.  By the time I got to Hwy 64 and Canada Rd, I was soaked.  The lightning was starting and thunder was all around.  I don’t like riding on Canada Rd, so I stuck to the plan of riding up Davies and follow that to Canada Rd.  Let me tell you, it’s no fun riding in the pouring rain, especially when you don’t have glasses on.  The one good thing is that you find an extra gear and I was moving.  When I got to Canada, I decided not to go the route I planned, so I took Huff and Puff.  Halfway down the road, my seat decided to loosen up.  I had to pull over and lift it up and tighten the seat.  That didn’t work very well, but I only had a mile and a half to go, so I road with the seat down.  Not very comfortable.  In any event, I made it home just fine.  I wish May would get here soon, so  all the flowers will be in bloom and the rain would stop.
