Downpour !!

So tonight the BBC weather got it wrong and instead of sunny spells on the way how it was heavy showers. I was doing a long ride round to the club hill climb. It was raining when I left work but half way to the hill climb the heavens opened and there was a deluge that was like standing under a waterfall for about 3-4 mins. I was soaked to the bone and the roads were running like rivers. I decided not to continue to the hill climb as I did not want to get cold standing and headed home through the flooded roads.

It’s days like these that the RDA really makes sense and I know we designed the right product. The disc brakes stop you in the wet. The dynamo light shines while the skys are getting darker. With a chain tonight the lubricant would have been washed off and the last half hour of the ride would have been very noisy. The belt made no noise at all.

Best of all i know I can roll the bike out of the shed tomorrow and not need to do anything except get on and ride ;-)
