Last night after work I headed west into the flat rural country for a short recumbent ride. There was nearby thunderstorms rumbling off in the distance but it cleared up enough I decided to risk it. We've had plenty of rain and the creeks are flowing good.
It was an easy ride mainly just to get out and enjoy the fresh country air. I even rode in my jean shorts, polo shirt and work shoes. Regular pants aren't much fun on rides over half and hour or so especially on an upright bike but on the recumbent most street clothes function perfectly. Sometimes it is nice to just go for a ride without getting suited up in the cycling costume.
