NOTES: It is kind of an artform, catching the only dry time window on a soaking wet rainy day. Once the moment has come, you need to be prepared, you need to be ready. Choose the right clothes . Get your backpack ready . Take a great cup of coffee , black , no sugar , to get your mind and body in focus. And finally , keep staring out of the window like a lunatic, while you’re waiting for the moment to come.

Today, the rain got me at the end, but I was lucky enough to start the ride in semi – dry conditions. It was a good decision . At the end of the day, you can’t change the weather , but you can change your attitude…
