Thanks Reb...it does.
I was stupidly wearing flip flops when I rode last night...usually wear my skechers. Anyway, lightening, thunder and hail hit when I was 2 miles from home...and in the part of town I was riding in I didnt have shelter right away until I had already been riding in hail for a few blocks...OUCH! That stung.
Good luck with your non-smoking!
