Riding in the Rain: Asthma Ride 2006

Just like last year, the Asthma Ride was a lot of fun and was for a great cause. We rode again with Andy and Amanda. Unfortunately, much of the ride this year seemed to be underwater since it rained all day. Bill was even whinier than usual since his shoes were perpetually full of water and although he kept wringing out his socks, his shoes kept sloshing around. We didn't even get off our bikes on Assateague Island on Saturday since it was so miserable and windy--we just turned around and kept riding! We drove back on Sunday and had a great sunny walk along the beach.

Not many photos taken on Saturday because we were afraid of getting the camera wet.

This is about as good as it gets for surfers near low-tide off Assateague.
