Biking in the rain.

I took my new bicycle for its first ride today.

I ate lunch, and hit the Burke Gilman trail. Unfortunately, I waited until it started to rain pretty heavy. But I wanted the bike ride, and refused to talk myself out of it. I biked to Husky Stadium and back - approximately 3.3 miles one way.

On the way back, I almost took out 3 pedestrians. Luckily I didn't hit the pedestrians, nor did I go sailing over my handle bars. It was a close call. The ground was wet and I am still getting used to the brakes.

Hopefully my legs will not be too sore tomorrow so I can go for another wet and chilly ride.
