By this time last year I had already ridden my first short training rides on the road. It seems spring is running late this year with continuous wet weather instead of the more seasonally correct dry roads and constant sunshine. Of course it is early days and the thing to remember is that there is lots of fun to be had even if the weather is not all that great. The local cyclo-cross series VPCX had its final season ending event and despite the dismal weather in the morning the day turned out pretty awesome. I think I even saw a glimpse of the sun.
