Wednesdays ride to the Eureka

Boy did I get caught the other day. I set off for the Eureka Cafe on the Iceni winter bike and about 1/2 a mile in it starts to rain. Not a problem out comes the over jacket. I stay behind a tractor for a couple of hundred yards and then turn off towards Brimstage.
The rain is fairly heavy but worse was to come. 150 yards on I pick up a puncture in the front tyre. As I set about changing the tube the heavens open, real monsoon stuff. There is no way out of this one as the nearest shelter is 1/2 a mile away. It was that bad I had to empty the rain water out of the tyre before putting the tube in.
Cars were crawling past as presumably they couldnt see where they were going.
I’ve had better days and the tempation was to turn around and head home but I decide to carry on with the original plan. An hour later the sun was out.
