The apartment at Cremona I had booked for three nights. As early as on Saturday the weather app predicted rain on Monday too. This was a change in prediction.
Only for a few minutes I thought to postpone my departure to Tuesday.
Very soon I decided to cycle in the rain. My idea was to see how I can handle the rain. Also I wouldn’t be a wimp. And I wanted to get free and unimpressed by such obstacles.
I was well prepared to stay the rain. That doesn’t mean to stay dry because there are two types of getting wet. From outside and from sweating. My new rainwear, the fantastic pair of trousers and the gaiters kept me absolutely dry. But after half an hour I felt wet inside.
It was a bit a challenge to accept this wet and hot feeling. After an hour I was familiar with and I drove through the rain and was in a happy mood 🙂
It’s up to me to say to myself how poor I am. Or „singing in the rain“ 🙂
So I was glad for my decision.
There was only a moderate rainfall but the whole day long.
I mostly used roads because the bike path sometimes is a dirt road and after 3 days of rain these roads were muddy.
Only two times I went such muddy dirt tracks. This was really difficult and exhausting.
