48 hours of rain

Tuesday May 15, 2012

The rain started to fall on Mother’s Day and it finally came to a stop early this morning.

We needed the rain, the tree pollen was pretty bad and the grass was drying out. With the cost of water in the city of Charlotte, there’s nobody watering their lawn these days.

Had two days to eat all I wanted, I gained a much needed 2 pounds. Felt much better on today’s ride, though it was slow going with the muddy trails. By the end of ride, me and the bike needed to be hosed down.

By Friday, the trails should be all dried up and it’s time to put the hammer down.

MTB: distance 21.77 miles, average speed 13.6 mph.
