It has been raining for the last 18 hours pretty much non-stop so no riding this weekend unless it is nice tomorrow. Got a ton of work done as a result so not a total loss.

stick a "per" between the two names that make up the image. I just tested it a minute ago. Shame I think their shoes are ugly or I'd get a pair.
