Far too much of my ride is looking like this. It is absolutely bucketing rain right now, so tomorrow will be worse. I guess I'll be the Queen of cycling advocacy when maintenance is scheduled, rather than happening when I get around to yanking chains. I know that road cyclists are a bit 'princess and the pea' about washouts of sand and gravel, but I am getting too old for all this cyclocross training. There is nice smooth pavement under there somewhere!
Oh boy! The 40mm alarm just rang on the rain gauge! We are in for a flood tonight.
