i've done a couple of rides up to young's point and back recently. partly for the distance and partly also because it's a beautiful ride. strange fact though is that usually when i've ridden to
young's point over the last few years, it rains.
i remember a ride last summer. i saw a black cloud to the west. it was travelling south right alongside me. i thought for sure that it would turn west and then just before i got to lakefield it turned east and kaboom, crack, splash - a thunderstorm. i'll ride through them but i don't like them. there is something very visceral and ennervating about the experience though.
anyhow, my latest journey was no exception as i turned around at highway twenty eight and
headed south along young's point road.
the clouds gathered.
and sure enough little spitty bits started blowing my way.
it wasn't wet the whole time though.
