That old "good news, bad news" routine

First piece of good news: March was a strong month for riding and put me ahead of schedule.
First piece of bad news: April will be a weak month and be about 200Ks short.
Second piece of good news: The 600 or so Ks I'll be riding in the first week or so of May should fix that. :)
Second piece of bad news: My Bikejournal ranking is dropping and as the summer kicks in for the northern hemisphere riders that'll only get worse. 
Final piece of good news: The 6 or 7 100K rides I'm about to do will at least temporarily push me back up the list. Maybe even into the top 10%. I live in hope. :)

And now for a riff on a certain series of credit card ads...

Goretex socks: ~$50
Commuting in the rain and arriving at work wearing sandals with warm dry feet: priceless.

I'm not sure where this quote is from (Billy Connolly?) but "There's no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing" is all too true. And I have good clothing. :)
