Movie Streets

Awake unusually early with the excitement and anticipation of getting to ride in the rain.  Out the door at 5:20am the light rain quickly faded.  I stopped for a moment to shed my rain jacket and switch from a t-shirt into a wool long sleeve top. The rest of the ride to work was dark and uneventful and  I was treated to a ride on what I like to call Movie Streets.

Movie Streets:  Ever notice that streets in movies after dark always seem to be inexplicably wet when it’s not raining?  Well, occasionally I get the treat of riding in that same condition.  Dark with wet streets, no rain.  Some of the thrill of getting to ride in the rain, without getting wet.  Moment of gratefulness for fenders and a front fender flap.
