Lots of rain

on February 23, 2009


I know it’s good for the drought and all, but this rain is not great for riding bikes…

    You can say that again. After getting completely waterlogged during my commute last Tuesday, my shoes finally dried off just in time to get soaked again over the weekend. Thank God I own more than one pair.

    I’m usually happy to get around by bike instead of car, but biking half an hour to work in a rainstorm, and then taking several hours to dry off once I get there, is one of the few times that I wish I owned a car.

    What are you talking about? Fenders, rainpants and either a jacket or raincape will keep you nice and dry!
