Coffeeneuring Ride #7!! In the books....and in the Rain!

With today's ride, I have completed my Coffeeneuring Challenge Ride #7 today! Craig joined me as the only other rider crazy enough to ride in the rain we have been experiencing. We hit the "other" Starbucks in Redmond Town Center as we kept the ride flat and shorter given the standing water and leaves that were out today. Still it rained pretty continuously all the way through the 14 mile ride. At the start I contemplated using the pull buoy as well as wearing my swim goggles but elected at the last minute to just wear normal biking rain gear (although the goggles and pull buoy were in my panniers.....just in case.) And, here a shot of the precipitation this storm is bring us to enjoy! Most of our rivers are on a flood watch if not already flooding!
