RUSA stalwart Ken Johnson of Sacramento slogged through a wet spring like other riders in northern California to prepare for our brevets. The rain did nothing to dampen his poetic muse.

Thanks to Bill Bryant for forwarding this along.

      For this madness I'm getting too old.
      All month long I've been wet, I've been cold.
      Please forgive my complaining,
      But if it doesn't stop raining,
      By April that bike may be sold.
