riding in the rain, episode II

I had to ride through this again! (It was worse than it looks!)

It rained so hard water was creeping past my rainsuit!

On the way home two very stupid high school kids wearing black decided to jaywalk in front of me. I gave them a good scare as my wheels locked up and I skidded for about 30 feet. That was pretty interesting.

Yet, I have to say, the D208s are doing a very good job in this deluge. I'm not really pushing to find the limits of their wet traction, and I'm certainly not riding like I do on a dry day, but I've ridden through about the worst weather we ever have, and with caution only once (stupid kids) did the tires give.

You should be a pro at riding in the rain by now.
