Biking Through The Storm

Written by Boston Biker on Nov 04

I got the chance to ride around in the hurricane last week, it was windy, and wet, and sorta awesome. Greg was out riding around as well, and documented it on video for the rest of us to watch, read more about his adventures here. My favorite part is when the wind blows so hard he turns completely around.

Did anyone else ride though the storm? What is the craziest weather you have ever ridden though? I got caught in a flash flood once on my bike, water up over the bottom bracket in a matter of seconds. Leave your stories in the comments.
