    Hahaha, I just came here to post the same thing. I just switched to clipless today, and had a nice 3 minute ride around the neighborhood before it started raining again. I guess I'll have to content myself with dreaming about how much more efficient I'll be at both riding and eating **** instead of actually doing it for a bit.

    Fires at a campsite are so overrated. "We're camping now!!!". I'm a GAZ stove kind of camper. Pretty lame, right? Not really camping, right?

    I'm gonna have to do some of that light therapy stuff before I start thinking about killing myself. So this is why the suicide rate in Seattle is so high.

    You sit around a stove and drink beers? What do you throw a can of white gas into for fun?

    If it would just warm up and rain I'd be ok with. I'm out firewood and I'll be damned if I'm buying some at the store or filling up the propane before the end of the world.

    That's right, we only have one more day before the end of the world and it's gonna be f'ing raining.

    First Wiggs tells me I don't live on the Front Range and now you're the decider on who is a cyclist. Thank god the rapture is coming before my 30th b'day. I don't think I can deal with all these new issues and a deconstructed worldview.

    I'm going to ride my bike and post in the Western Slope forum from now on. See you fools later.

    Yeah, you're sooo right. So much better to have trails closed because of forest fires then having muddy trails that dry up in less then a week...

    have you ever noticed that 9news predicts weather well, unless the weather is trending. then they like to make "news" by predicting more of the same. You see it all the time after a few winter storms. they love to come out and say "guess what MORE storms" even if it's just a chance of storms.

    with all the rain we just got, I would believe that they would love to predict more rain.

    NOAA says 50% chance of rain on Mon Night thru Tues, then normal t-storms.

    Who the hell talked about forest fires???? Besides this weather pattern has lasted long enough, or do you not ride enough to notice?
