40 mile RR tomorrow.
forecast calls for rain and a high in the low 50s. cat4 goes off at 2:30, so hopefully it'll be that warm or warmer.
ive ridden in the rain a bunch this week and made the following observations:
55 degree 25minute TT - short gloves: i was fine. might have gotten cold if it was longer or at lower intensity. but i think probably mid 50s is my over under for gloves when its wet.
1 hour commute yesterday low 50s and raining pretty hard - PI gavias: good 3 seaosn dry glove but not water resistant. was soaked though within 45 minutes.
1 hour commute this morning low 40s and raining and windy - PI lobsters: these were totally waterproof, and i've used them on cold slushy wet rides of up to 4 hours and stayed dry, BUT theyre very heavy and probably too warm for anything much higher than low 40s. or are they.
so, i guess i have a gap in my glove selection. need something for 40-55 with rain - so something highly water resistant but light-ish.
or i might just go with the short gloves and suffer though it.
