I wish I knew what rides those were. That's one reason I dislike group rides.

Those rides happen on the north side. Not sure how it goes down on CRR.

Got a bit of rain just leaving school yesterday, then it was all road spray and traffic the entire way home.
Similar this morning. Nothing was falling, yet I somehow ended up covered in water and road filth. Bike needs a bath now, for sure.

It poured on me from 3-4 yesterday. All the way from Westchase to Spring. Not fun. Weather people in Houston are the worst forecasters I have seen in this country.

Hmmmm, I didn't ride to work yesterday because of the forecast. During a 6am and 11am broadcast yesterday they were predicting a 40% chance of rain and radar showed rain to the West. They also predicted fog for this morning. There's always weather.com

All the forecasts I watched, and read online said 20% chance, and all after 5PM.

Said NO rain today.

In the 7 years I have been here, if they say 80-100% chance, I am usually safe to ride. It's comical.

The on air folks have nothing to do with the web and sometimes the video clips are dated

I was doing just fine on the afternoon commute yesterday until I hit a wall of showers on 59 near Fountainview. I mean, it was a "wall" - no rain, dry road one foot and sheets of rain the next. Tucked in behind the fairing and didn't get too wet. I'd say the forecast of 30% chance was pretty darn accurate. I was rained on just about 30% of my commute route.

Dehumidifier and boot dryer took good care of my gear when I got home. Also washed my bike (it's a sickness of mine), so wasn't about to rinse and repeat today.
