Going Postal: Through rain and snow and wind and coldBy Will • Nov 24th, 2007 • Category: Cycling
The weather this week reminded me of the unofficial US Postal mantra “Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.”
Actually, according to wikipedia this is a rephrasing of a quote from the ancient Greek Historian Herodotus.
Stayed neither by snow nor rain nor heat nor darkness from accomplishing my appointed course with all speed — HERODOTUS
Anyway, I was going riding this morning even if there was a hurricane or a blizzard. Instead it was wet and grey but fun once I got moving. Great road/trail route in the hills south-west of me.
11 rides so far in November isn’t bad considering the weather.
