cycling almost nude through a hailstorm

Hmmmm well I tried to think up a snappy title for this post but eventually settled on a simple truth of what I did yesterday.
Since it was the bankholiday weekend I decide to get some extra exercise and go for another 50 mile ride to Solihull and back.
Bank holiday monday and everyone is on the road busy going someplace they don't usually go when they are working.
Well when I set off the sun was shining so i decided to wear my usual little black number......cycling shorts with a light T shirt......anything more and I figured that I'd be overheating.
As I passed into Dudley the storm clouds gathered and I got a soaking.....dried off a bit.....then another soaking....and so on all the way to Solihull.

I'd opted for nice long socks too which was good because the few minutes of sunshine i saw was enough to burn the skin on my knees. Ouch.
I'm glad I didn't opt for shorts with a higher leg or ankle socks otherwise I'd really be suffering by now.

Coming home the weather took a turn for the worse. Much more rain then torrential rain and hailstones. It got so bad that I was forced to take cover several times in bus shelters.
Very quickly I reached maximum saturation....well the cycling outfit doesn't hold much water thankfully.
I rode the final 10 miles with the sensation of being wet and nude....feeling the wind, rain and ice lash my body in a most stimulating fashion.

Hmm long rides are torment but I love em.

Don't ever give up searching for the fun in life.
