The weather forecast didn't look too good for this afternoon and evening, but decided to try to do a long mtb ride as the holiday week is soon over. Rode first 2 hours alone and then with a local singlespeed freak Jan, who also runs Pyöristi bike store.
And yes, the rains started 3 PM, but it wasn't too heavy. Found some new trails (to me), and rode also the more technical part of Revenge course. After that I rode with Jan the easier part of Revenge. Some notes: the rain isn't reallly a problem when it's not too heavy and you have good gear. Continental Vertical Pro UST is pretty good tire for wet and slippery conditions. And Deore XT groupset works really well.
4.5 hours and 77.42 kms. Pretty satisfied with that as I rode also 2 hours on Tuesday evening.
