I've had a couple long commutes in pouring rain recently. Good rain gear means the fun goes on!

more rain

A wet start to winter didn't stop me from commuting to Novato until an approaching storm with high winds caused schools to cancel!

Although I commuted to Novato in the flood last week, I wasn't looking forward to riding in winds over 30mph being added to the mix.

Winter storm, roads flooded, highway stopped, thankfully biking saved me two hours compared to driving the 15 mile return from Novato.

Canal Trail, Briones

I rode the entire length of the Contra Costa Canal Trail for the first time.

sometimes a scenic and relaxing path

sometimes a dangerous path

so many problems with this...

Then we went for a hike in Briones!

Carquinez Scenic

I spun out to the newly opened George Miller Trail along the Carquinez Straight.

walking around town

I love living near great places to walk.  With our new rain jacket there's no need to stop for winter!
