Rainy Saturday morning….

Most people would associate rain with sadness. This morning, it was an awesome ride in the rain.

6:18am….my ride buddy Zaldy ( https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1239227771) and I took off en route to our usual mountain bike playground Monterey Hills. Skies were gray and it seems that there was a very little chance that the sun would show up. It took us 34 minutes to reach the top. We were 4 minutes OFF our usual pace. It’s probably because we were talking too much while pedaling to the top. Zaldy was also too busy during this month and we didn’t get to ride together. So I guess this was time to catch up on stories. ha! ha! ha!

Midway to the top, the sun did shine but very briefly. When we reached the top, the skies were darker. From where we parked, we could see the skyline disappear little by little. It started to rain. By this time, we decided to head down to lower grounds and go home. We were riding in the rain!

Raindrops were smashing on our faces at 41kph. By the time we got home, we were soaking wet. Zaldy headed off to his house (which was around 2kms. away from my place). I dunno what’s with riding in the rain but its one of the best feeling when riding a bike. (for me, that is)

Soaking wet as I am, I cleaned my bike, dried it up, and parked it. Took a quick shower.

Now time to cook breakfast. Everyone at home was still sleeping. (Probably awake but too lazy to get up because its a weekend plus the fact that it’s bed weather). Brewed some coffee, cooked fried rice, longganisa, and macaroni soup. Ahhhh yes! nothing like a good breakfast to cap off the early morning ride in the rain.
