I had to get out for my ride early this morning because guess why. Rain forecasted for later morning and much of the day. I do love early morning riding and seem not to do it unless this — weather forecast. 

Now that I have taken the time to more thoroughly read the rules of our challenge, and have found there are Daily Challenges, I first had to hunt down the only flip flops we have — the ones we use for shower shoes when camping — because today (6/17) is NATIONAL FLIP FLOP DAY.

I determined that these are not good riding shoes for my exposed toes. I would be wearing my brand new Keens that arrived yesterday.

And, Yes, we here in the Pacific Northwest do wear socks with our sandals. That was shocking to me when I first moved here from the east coast, but now is ‘de riguer’ and I love wearing them most of the year. 

I gathered up our Duct Tape for 6/16-6/18 DUCT TAPE DAYS.

After assuring correct foot wear, making sure I had some duct tape with me, I donned my Rain Legs for insurance and went for my ride. I tried, but it is hard to tell that I do have on my Rain Legs.

I was successful in getting a “daily” and a “weekly”, so off I was to find a “monthly”.


The Rain Legs insurance worked, and I got home with no rainfall throughout my ride and not until a couple of hours later.

    I love those sandals! socks with sandals are sort of no-no here, too, but I find it is about the most comfortable footwear combination, not even when on a bike.
    Great that your rainleg insurance worked. And they are so comfortable, you hardly notice you have them on, I find.

      PLUS — the rain legs keep you warm in the early morning cloudy, damp, windy, 50 degree weather. How have I lived this long without them!! And as you might guess — Susan (who rued them) wants a pair!

      Socks and sandals was such a no-no in my past that I laughed and held out for a while. Then I gave in and found that this is a great way to wear them!!

    You know what they say: If you can’t fix it with duct tape, forget it! It’s broke!
