Despite dispensing advice about riding in the rain, I try my best to avoid it.
But sometimes you just can’t. Such was the case on Monday night. When I left a restaurant during a light drizzle but pedaled the last six blocks home through a heavy rain.
As you can see, I didn’t melt. But I did learn that plastic grips get slipperier in the rain. So do the bottoms of your dress shoes. Especially when they’re holding a few inches of rainwater.
I know Dottie was caught in a summer downpour recently. Anyone else experienced Mother Nature’s wrath lately?
