Although it was ok today and I should have ridden the rain bike to work today at least but no cigar, forecast was crap so I whimped out.

Normally overcoming the threat of rain motivates me to ride anyway but going to the hospital with this S**TSHOW storming straight at us is enough to kill any extra motivation so it's not happening when I probably need it most.

Also not up for struggling with the new setup so It will have to wait for the sun to hopefully motivate me.
