They really have been hyping up this storm for a whole week. Biggest storm in nearly 10 years in Northern California.
I just got my bike back from the shop, as I took it in to get all the gunk I collected from plowing through a flooded bike trail (2 feet deep of standing water) from last week’s rain storm. That was a pretty good soaker, but tomorrow’s storm should be even more massive.
Water collected in the frame, to the point where my seatpost (Aluminum) seized up in the frame (Titanium). Titanium has great anti-corrosive properties, but the combination of Aluminum, with Titanium, and water …. not a good combination. It took 2 guys, and a bike stand to free up the seat post from the frame. Replaced the seatpost with a carbon fiber one … hopefully that won’t corrode as much.
So, with that in mind, ride or drive? If I do ride, I think I’ll avoid San Tomas Aquino MUT … Or do I wimp out and drive? Supposed to also be hella windy.
