Rain days are the best,

Kevin Wilson

I get (s)wet sic. riding in the dry, so never bother with waterproofs unless it is really tipping it down. But that is more to stop the wind chill.
I have to change at work anyway so as Matt implies, it is just a frame of mind.
Enjoy your ride whatever the weather.
Now who said "there is no such thing as bad weather, just inappropriate clothing"?



Rain is clean, only road grime and mud is dirty. Get yourself some fenders.

Also, your blinky lights are way more visible on overcast & rainy days. Drivers tend to pass more carefully when the weather is bad.


Rain comes in a variety of different flavors, and whether I like it or not depends on the type of rain and how it combines with other factors (topography, temperature, wind, traffic, etc). For instance, a moderate steady rain with little wind on a flattish road can be a very pristine and relaxing experience for me.

On the other hand, descending a steep grade on a narrow, twisty mountain road with lots of traffic behind me during a heavy and windy downpour can be a harrowing experience for me, especially if there are tree limbs and other debris falling into the road as a result of the storm. It's a situation I occasionally find myself in,though!
