TNWC Deluge

A light rain with some small hail thrown in at the start of the TNWC turned into a sideways-blowing full-on epic. About 15 starters dwindled to just Karl and I then we pulled the plug after 15min when we were plowing through 8" rivers at the turns and nearly getting blown off the bike. They don't call em "severe thunderstorm warnings" for nothin'......It was fun while it lasted.

The beach would have been a big improvement but near the end I looked over at Karl and he had a big grin on his face...after a point it started to get comical.

time to jump on the velodyne...
