Not 20 minutes into our ride, it started raining. And then it rained harder. We were already wet, so might as well keep going, right? After all, at least it was warm ;).
We ended up gettting in about 35 miles, and rode the rail trail extension, newly discovered trails in Bedford, part of Great Brook and part of the new Bruce Freeman Rail trail. The bike worked great, and Tide took care of all of the dirt ;)
