My Ride-Along With Storm Chaser Greg
It’s been raining steadily since yesterday afternoon. At 1:30 p.m., I said “to heck with it, I’ve got to ride.” And so I did.
And who did I see along the way? Why, it was Storm Chaser Greg. I’ll let him take over for a minute.
The past couple of days I’ve been wearing shorts on my bike rides. I swore I wouldn’t go back to long pants until November. Today I wore rain paints, but I had shorts underneath so I believe I kept my vow.
I don’t have much more to say about my ride. Storm Chaser Greg, however, was anxious to warn everybody about another one of his crazy weather-related danger situations. I’ll turn it over to him to close out this post.

I admire both you and Storm Chaser Greg for being out on a day like that. Riding in the rain on a warm summer day can be fun, but not so much on a rainy March day. I do think we need to consult the rules committee on whether shorts under rain pants actually counts. Wait, what, you say there is no rules committee? Hmmm. I guess your good to go then! 🙂
Ugh! You’re making me feel very good about being down here in the dry southwest. Perhaps we should reconsider our plans to return to Oregon next week.

I love riding in the rain (so long as it’s not too cold). I’ve still got a stripe on my cycling rain coat, think it’s a combination of residual road oil and dirt.
Storm chaser Greg was really confronting some danger there. So rushed and hurried to not even do an Idaho stop at the stop sign 😉 Do you have a rear rack on that bike? My dad helped me make an awesome fender out of zip ties and juice bottles back in 2017, and it’s still going strong today. I can send a photo if you like.
Yes, I do have a rear rack on my bike, but you were supposed to pretend, like I did, that Storm Chaser Greg didn’t have one. And yes, I WOULD like to see that juice bottle fender.
