Started out to do a 20 mile or so loop in the sunshine. Halfway through started to lightly rain, then heavy rain, then HAIL bouncing of my helmet! Hung in there (no place to stop anyway) and kept plugging along about 45 MPH. It let up pretty quick, but definitely had me tensed up for a bit. Wet roads, then back to dry roads and sunshine as I got close to home. A christening, I guess.
Had to cross a long metal grate bridge halfway through and the bike was walking all over it. I just kept it steady and went on through with no problem, but it's just one new challenge after another with this new toy.
