I do not mind riding in the rain, but one downside is wet shoes. Wet shoes take a long time to dry and as a result can start to smell musty. Newspaper and powder can be used to help with drying and "de-stinking," but it is also a good idea to take measures to keep water away from your shoes as much as possible.
Even though I ride with fenders, I have found that my shoes get really wet because when I ride through big puddles, the water kicks up right at shoe height. My fenders have a small mudguard, but it is not big enough to avoid the splash impact.
In an effort to fend off the spray, I decided to create my own additional mudguard. I started off by cutting a magazine page in the shape of what I thought would do the trick.
My first thought was to use a milk carton, but the milk carton did not seem to have the surface area shape I needed to conform to my cutout.
I started looking around a had and spotted a surge protector I had purchased but not opened. The packaging looked about the right size so I opened . . .
I added some velcro to my fender and to the mudflap so I could attach and remove as I liked . . .
. . . and now I just need for it to rain to test it out. I report back when tested.
