Beat the Rain Ride

The temperature was no warmer that our last ride, but the dew point had moved into the 70s. It was humid. Not as humid as it will be later in the summer, but it was definitely going to be a sweaty ride.

The sky was threatening. The wind was gusting around 23-25 mph. We checked radar before heading out. A large area of rain was coming at us from the south. Bands of rain were stretched across south Florida. It seemed there was a 50-50 chance we could get in a ride without getting too wet.

Half-way through the ride we thought we were out of luck. It began to spit raindrops, the wind making the raindrops feel like fairy water bullets. But our luck held and the sputtering rain stopped. We made it home dry and happy. Another bike day snatched from the weather goblins. (OK, so I've been reading a lot of urban fantasy lately...)
