Foggy’n Misty Sunday Ride

It’s been a stormy weather here Tokyo.
Feels like spring has come.
This end of March was just like that.
We were looking for another ride but had to keep our eyes on the weather as there was still a bif of chance of rain.
When I woke up in the Sunday morning, it was kind of misty outside.
It might have been lightly drizzling too.
Because we don’t ride in the rain, John thought that I would call off the ride, but luckily there was no rain around the area we were planning to ride!!
(weather radar was showing the rain cloud was just avoiding right around the area! What a lucky girl I am!)

Anyway, John said that I was lucky. Very lucky.

Not only just for “our” matters such as getting cold, uneasy to ride, etc,
we also have some other reasons for not to ride in the rain.
Basically almost all the trails in Japan is for hiking and not for horse back ride nor MTB.
We are NOT equal.
Some hikers hate to see bikes in “their” trails too.
We need to be careful not to collapse the path and ride politely ALWAYS.
SO, riding muddy trail after or in the rain should be strictly forbidden.

Well, we cannot control the Mother Earth.
When she says it’s rain, it’s rain.
Just gotta live with it.

When we started riding it was pretty foggy and totally a damp weather
so we didn’t take a break and just kept going.

Overall it was a nice ride.
I had rode this trail 6times in last 1 year,
but this time might have been the fastest.
Felt like it’s done so damn fast and made me wanna ride more.

Faster! Faster! Faster!
yeeey!

ここしばらく何だかお天気が荒れ模様で、
 週末が近づくたびに
「今週は乗れるかな~」って状態が続いております。
 3月最後の週末も、何だか微妙なお天気で、
ギリギリまでどーしよーどーしよー状態。

しかしここは晴れ女の底力!
 朝、都内は微妙な湿っぽいお天気だったけど、
なぜか雨雲レーダーを見る限り
走ろうと思ってた地域は雨雲なっしー
 ばんざーい♪
てなわけでサクッと。
でも、お天気は下り坂だから、いつもよりチョッと早目にスタート。
お待ちかねのラーメンを目指すべく、どんどん走ります。
 (で、結局ラーメンお休みで食べれなかったんだけど)
 今回は死神さんとダッテーさんと3人。
 下りの最初はダッテーさん・死神さん・私の順番で
次は死神さん・私・ダッテーさんの順番で。
そしていつもより早めの
4時間ぴったりで終了☆

2人とも早~いから途中途中で待ってもらったり、
ついてこれるようにユックリめに走ってくれたり、
 迷惑をかけてばかり。本当にいつもアリガトウございます。。
 早く上手になってもっと早く走れるようにならなきゃね!

 今週末は久しぶりに土日ともお天気大丈夫そうだし、
どっか走りにいけるといいな~◎

つか、
らーーーめ~~~ん!!!!!
