Looks like I'll be spending some time racing in 45 degrees, rain, and wind coming up... "I would ride what I train in".... but I don't train in that stuff.
Just a couple of attire questions:
1) Rain Jacket? - I have a nice quality cycling rain jacket I could wear. Although it seems to be a bit of a kite, and may not breathe too well. But Im assuming staying a little too warm but dry would trump all else. Will thermal arm warmers get wet and sloppy, or is there something else I should wear on top?
2) Shoe Covers - I have lyrca shoe covers currently. Has anyone ever tried something like Scotchguard or other water repellent to make them more water resistant? Or is my best bet to buy more gear for a more weather resistant cover to keep my feet dry?
Any other tips to stay as comfortable as possible?
