Rain, Rain, Rain

First bike ride in a while this past weekend. It was one of the rainiest days EVER, but of course, we had to go out. Leaving with just raincoats and fleece leggings over our lovely bike shorts, within the first 20 minutes, we realized our mistake of going out. It was so cold, so rainy and we couldn’t see further than 3 meters in front of the handlebars. You know in the movies where cars go past pedestrians or bikers and they get dramatically splashed and soaked? Well that happened, multiple times…

This ride helped us come to the realization that we really need the right gear. Booties for the next ride will be a must, as will better water proof rain pants and helmet covers.

For your entertainment, here’s a quick picture I took right before heading out, having no idea of what was to come.
