Katy Flatland 2007

Aimee and I had high hopes for this ride yesterday. Even though the weather looked a bit ominous we loaded the bike on the rack and headed out to Katy for the ride. We pulled out of the driveway at 5:45am. About 2 miles from Katy Mills Mall where the ride was to begin, we got a call from Ken who was a mile or so ahead of us. He reported he was in the midst of a downpour and was turning around for home. Before I had a chance to hang up the phone we were in the middle of dense rain. We too headed for home, but not before finding some shelter so we could strip the bike of seats and seat covers to keep them dry. Going back to bed once we got home was glorious.
