So, did everyone in Melbourne enjoy their commute today!? This morning was awesome...not too cold and heavy rains and a blizzard of road-spray - a great day for practicing and/or sharpening up your wet weather riding skills. I had a great ride!....and coming home was the same - just a little cooler than I would have liked. It was a good opportunity to really put the feelers out while riding, and sharpen the senses for traction, grip and balance when giving it the gas or or under braking, AND zoning in more tightly to anticipate what Mr Cage was doing. I actually got to work faster than most dry days - mainly I think because the cars were tending to be slower, so I had an easier time of negotiating my way through the traffic...same deal on the freeway leg of my journey. Can't say I'd wanna do that every day, but it was liberating to have a ride in the rain today.
