Default Re: Anyone Riding To Work Rain Or Shine?

I do it. Its 20 minutes each way. I carry a tool kit and spare tube and pump.

I also use motorcycle grade wet weather gear and clear (night) and tinted (day) safety glasses. Don't trust regular sunglasses to protect from road debris.

I use 3 bikes a shifter bike in fine weather, another single speed for wet weather or night, as it has fenders and lights. The third one is for backup, spares and for friends to ride.

I would consider 2 bikes to be the minimum for getting it done reliably.

I get nervous when I only have one running.
