This morning I awoke to grey skies and heavy rain. After a discussion we took the car to the tea shop , the rain stopped and the sun appeared so that led to a guilt trip that we should have been on the bikes. Home again and got the bikes and yes the rain started again. So i've declared the end of summer marked by the ritual of getting the winter riding gear out of the attic and putting the summer gear away till spring. Sad to see another summer pass but looking forward to colder miles anyway.
