Saturday Night Sleet

Here I am Saturday night after biking home in rain and sleet with Mr. Dottie.  The streets were not slippery yet, so the ride was not so bad.  :-)

My Lululemon Ride On Rain Jacket continues to perform well.  Being able to put the hood under my helmet is a great help.  Today the weather is super cold, dry and sunny, which I generally prefer, but sometimes a ride in the freezing rain can be invigorating.

P.S. Who watched the Golden Globes last night?  Love Tina and Amy!

  1. I love the Lulu Lemon jacket… and my understanding is that you can wear the hood on top of your helmet if you like, too…

    Do you have special tires for ice/winter riding? I had my first little slide on a patch of ice Friday, but wasn’t sure if there is really anything you can do about black ice on a bicycle.

      Absolutely: studded tires. I have a set of Schwalbe studded tires that have lasted 4 winters and are still going strong. Not on the bike shown, on my black Dutch bike. If you do a search for “studded” on the blog, you’ll find a review.

  3. Could have done with studded tires in Vancouver this morning… the city was a mess with black ice and freezing rain, and I went down within blocks of home…

    That’s how I wear mine: over a Giro Surface helmet. I like that Lululemon added neat notches in the hood to preserve peripheral vision.

    I haven’t tried wearing it over my helmet. I like that the hood is snug against my ears and kept them warm even though I forgot my ear muffs.
