Saturday morning started early with a 5:45 am wake up alarm. I had decided to ride my bike to the Beach to Beacon 10k race instead of waiting in traffic before and after the event. It was a clear morning but as I looked on the weather app, I saw rain was a-comin'! Luckily, they are almost never right and, after I ate my oatmeal and banana mush, I only had to pedal through a couple rain drops on my way to the finish line bike valet. The Bicycle Coalition of Maine had the foresight to realize that some participants were bad-ass enough to bike to the event and had free parking set up! I brought extra clothes in case the skies opened up but luckily, they were unnecessary.
