No fun. Waiting at MEC in Barrie.

No fun. Waiting at MEC in Barrie.

Yesterday we had the great plan to drive up to Barrie, run some errands then met up with my BiL for a trail ride. It was raining when we left but the weather network said <1mm after 1pm so we figured by the time we got to his place, tuned up the bikes (thanks again JP) that we still would have plenty of time for a ride. Well, we waited and waited for the rain to let upโ€ฆ moving on past 4pm and it was still POURING. By this time a ride was impossible as we had to get home for the dog and make dinner. As we were leaving the rain stopped. *eyeroll* Yep.

JP was amazing with his attention to our new bikes. Cleaned them up, got rid of the tacky reflectors, regripped and gave both bikes a tune-up, in addition to a quick tutorial on how to remove a tube from the bike. Bdot preferred the reverse bdot method. We managed a short visit as well. My sister is racing in Chicago.

It looks like more rain early this week too. Hmmmpt.

Bdot got a ton of useful info on SUPs which she is looking into getting. The MEC staff (Taylor) was very helpful.
