riding-in-the-rain-xl-thumb.jpgGot stuck riding in the rain yet again.  This time I had my new rain suit. Which worked  great.  The scary part of the ride home was the wind.  The wind gusts were around 60km/h.   I have ridden a bit of high wind before.  But this time it was different.  The wind was pretty much knocking me off my bike.  When I slowed down to make a left hand turn I had to stop for on coming traffic.  The wind pushed me so hard I ended up being moved about 5 feet to the right and all most falling off.  It pretty freaky and scary at the same time.  It happed two more times.  Might have to put weights on my bike or become fat lol.
