Cycling In The Rain

After todays ride I just wanted to list some quick pros and cons about biking in the rain.

Pro - Feeling like you are more hardcore than everyone else
Con - Worrying if that plastic grocery bag is really keeping your phone dry

Pro - Less bicycle & pedestrian traffic
Con - Not less car traffic

Pro - Seeing a large cypress tree that has been blown to pieces by lightning (true)
Con - Wondering if you are riding a two wheeled lighting rod

Pro - Knowing that it's only water
Con - Stopping distance

Pro - Ducks swimming in the bike lane (also true)
Con - Yourself swimming in the bike lane (slight exaggeration)

Pro - Not needing a shower when you get home
Con - Pouring the water out of your shoes, the same ones you have to wear tomorrow
