Default Re: Anyone Riding To Work Rain Or Shine?

I have commuted by bicycle every day, rain or shine, although I do not do it anymore. The best gear I found for rainy riding was a rain cape. Rain capes are like ponchos with straps that fit over your hands and the front handlebars. It makes sort of a tent over you and the bike. The problem with rain suits is that you end up getting soaked in sweat, although with a motored bike there is less of a problem with that. The rain cape gives you lots of ventilation while still keeping you dry. I'm not sure it is good for high speeds though. I don't know where to buy one, the one I had I got in Germany and it was ancient, used to have one but doesn't seem to be there now.
Drive fast, take chances.
