It's only rained twice all summer and Tony and I have arranged to ride through it both times. It's hard to take the forcasts seriously since they are wrong most of the time.  This time the 30% chance of precipitation occured on 100% of our ride.  It was a gentle rain but you do get pretty wet after a couple of hours.  And cold.  And dirty.  It was the latter two that shortened the ride.  My gears felt like they were grinding gravel and indeed they were, as it turned out.  All the lube was washed off and everything was covered with road grit.  Such fun.
