Today is National Ride to Work Day

Naturally, we're finally get the rain we've been missing all year... and from what I can tell, it's a lot of the East Coast that's getting it. Yippee.

Well if I had a job to ride to, I'd be all over that!

I rode mine to both my jobs today, and probably will tomorrow. :-D

Mine went to work today as well. Of course it does about half the time anyway.

I rode, but it also rained. I didn't see another bike all day.

I rode but didn't see many others on the road. Of course there was a chance of storms so that may have had something to do with it. I managed to miss them on my way home thank goodness.

Rode to work and back, as I do most days. I was afraid the monsoons would ruin my ride, but nope! Great ride, if a bit short.

Guess I should have been wearing pants...

I'm afraid mine was one of the bikes you didn't see today. After a string of good, dry to mostly dry days where I rode to work every day, today it rained for most of the day and only let up this evening. The bike stayed dry in the garage. This is not the summer weather I'd bargained for. I CAN ride in the rain, I just prefer not to.

Stan.
