Rain vs. Storm

While it is not raining yet, this afternoon promises to be pretty serious if I am to believe the forecasts. I was down to ride in rain, but rain + high winds + road debris = maybe not a good day to start riding in the rain. I did see a fair amount of fallen branches on the roads yesterday and that could be treacherous for a bicycle. Yes, I have a CX bike but I'm not ready to dismount and jump over stuff in the road. I'll wait to ride a "regular" rain day when it's not so stormy. I now hear there's a possibility of hail?!?

  1. Just read yesterday's post, too -- you're probably right to wait, given the debris. And if you can at least get a cheap rain poncho (even the dollar store kind) it will help. Now, fenders -- they might seem unnecessary, but they really do keep you from getting a wet streak up your back, which looks very odd when you get to work! :-) I think they ought to be standard on commuting bikes.
