My wife and I go on this ride yearly, it's a ride to raise funds for prostate cancer. Normally it's a sunburn concern , last year I was so burnt I blistered, with sunscreen! Normally we get 300-500 bikes.


This year however there was a looming chance of thunderstorms early in the week that grew to a 80% of severe. By saturday morning ( ride day) it changed to sunny no rain till 2 pm.. the ride goes to 3pm , so was worth the risk.


Got there, only maybe 100 bikes total, weather scared them all off. But it looked nice ( first photos) so we went anyway.


At 12pm the sky just turned! Down pour right until 4pm!


Wife and I completely soaked, i had to pour water out of my boots at the end. Was fun though.


Bike looks like I went mudding!


It continued to pour right through Fathers Day, and into today, So it's still very much muddy!


Going to wash it tonight though!


Added a photo of 2016 to see the turn out we usually get.
