This evening I had a dark ride home in light rain. I was caught without my raincoat or any other special rain accessories, but my normal outfit worked well.
My wool trench coat kept me warm and dry.
My leather boots served the same purpose for my feet, plus sported a reflective strap for extra visibility.
My beloved bag was unfazed by the wet weather, thanks to dark leather and pre-treatment with Cadillac Shield Spray.
My Brooks saddle was protected by me for the ride, but got a bit wet while I took pictures. I know some people baby their leather saddles, but mine is holding up well, so I’m not too worried.
For the most part, light rain does not bother me much. And soon rain will be replaced by snow!
P.S. Really hard for me to avoid a November Rain reference in this post. :)
