Rain got you down?

If the wet weather has put a damper on your biking mood you should read this inspiring post to the PortlandTransport.com blog by BTA head honcho, Evan Manvel. He wrote it after riding into work on Friday and stopping by Shift's Breakfast on the Bridges (photos). I especially liked the last few lines:

"Taking off my wet socks and trading out my shirt, I was soon dry. And felt alive. Alive from biking, from feeling the weather, from being with these people, and living in this place. I love this job."

    Heck yes. I rode all through the city on Friday as well and totally felt the same way. Rain makes a commute even more invigorating. And with some rain gear its like swimming through the city and not even getting wet. How fun is that?
