05/01/2010 — Rain ride

May 3, 2010

We woke up to the sound of thunder and heavy rain hitting the ground. For about an hour we both just laid in bed and checked the weather and discussed our options. We saw that tomorrow was supposed to be considerably worse, so we decided that we would try to get a good day of riding in, despite the rain.

We packed our stuff, ate breakfast, and loaded on our rain gear for a pretty intense and wet day. While the last time we rode in the rain was pretty cold, today was actually quite warm. In the mid to high 60s by noon, the rain was almost soothing and we found that being out riding in such weather was a great experience.

We cruised along at a pretty quick speed for a lot of the day, and were making really good time. All the while, it poured and poured.  Every once in a while we’d hear thunder and see lightning in the distance, but never close or often enough to make us worry in the least.

For me the day really seemed to fly by, and before I knew it we were crossing the 55 mile mark for the day, and rolling into Harrodsburg, KY. We checked into our motel (that we reserved in the morning as motivation for making it all the way in the rain) and ordered some pizza.

We spent the rest of the night just relaxing and watching television, and fairly early were both asleep.

Again, no pictures today – I don’t want to risk ruining my camera for a couple of pictures.
