As many of you will know, yesterday it tipped down with rain and thunder and lightning were the order of the day.
As I went to step out of the office building the heavens opened and I, along with two other lady cyclists watched in dismay as several metric tons of water fell from the sky. We decided to wait for a bit. One ventured out but soon dashed back in exclaiming 'I don't do lightning.'
Neither do I. Someone once argued the point that the rubber tires are ideal to protect you but I don't care. Lightning is where I draw the line.
We waited a few more minutes and the rain had almost completely stopped. It spat a bit nearer home but apart from the unattractive bikers' stripe I got because of my lack of mudguards it was fine. Rain is so not that bad.
