The rainy season is upon us and I have to admit I have already pretty much given up on cycling. The days are so short and gloomy that it makes much more sense to go climbing indoors than get wet outside. I still commute occasionally, but only on the rare sunny days. Today I went to shoot a local cyclocross race. Since I was there I just had to give it a go and ride one lap around the circuit with my single-speed winter bike. The atmosphere was great and sliding around in the mud was lot of fun. I haven’t cleaned up my bike or clothes yet, but if I had a CX bike I just might actually sign up for a race later on.
