Timing is everything

We had two great days of riding weather in a row this weekend -- yesterday was sunny and 90º (!), while today was almost as sunny but a few degrees cooler. I got out both days, yesterday exploring some areas of northeast Connecticut I had never been in before, and today doing one of my favorite rides up the Mohawk Trail to Williamstown (and gazpacho at Desperados).



On my way back home I was surprised to see a rainbow -- surprised because as far as I could tell, it had not rained at all. It took me a few minutes to find a place to safely pull over, one with a good field of view of the area in which I had seen the rainbow. Alas, this optical phenomenon was as ephemeral as it was beautiful -- by the time I got my camera out, it had almost vanished. I did manage to catch a tiny bit of it in this panorama -- can you see it? -- PL

That's it over to the far right, isn't it? Slightly right of center of the gap between the trees...

You're a lucky man, I thought we would have decent riding weather here yesterday, but I swear the weather forecast has never been more off! I got an hour away from home in what appeared to be brisk, but sunny conditions only to have the sky close up and just piss down on me the whole way back! Damn Melbourne weather!

Wish I could make it to San D. I have to hope someone has just as good equipment out there as I do that can get it up just as quick :).

PS. The Word Verification to post this was 'fartis'. Found that funny :).

Mohawk Trail to Williamstown is a fantastic ride. We take a trip from Clinton to Williamstown every 6 months or so to visit family. Rt. 2 through the mountains is a great ride, incredible scenery and some nice places to stop to grab a bite to eat.
