I'm all trained up and ready to go. The event starts Sunday morning at 7:30. It's my first Century attempt after 2 years of training. Last weekend I did 76 miles at 17.2 MPH over similar terrain. I've ridden before in 80 degree downpours and it was no big deal once I was completely drenched. Almost fun.
As the title states there is a 70% chance of rain and temps will be in the mid 70's. Anybody ridden in these conditions? I'll be riding in a short sleeve jersey and bib shorts. That's the only cycling clothes I own as I live in the Tropics of South Louisiana. For winter riding, temps all the way down to the frigid 50s, I have some long sleeve shirts but nothing for cool and wet.
I've got a windbreaker but I've got no place to carry it other than wearing it. If it stopped raining I'd melt in the windbreaker. My trusty steed is a minimalist Roadie.
Do you think I'll be warm enough with just the jersey? Is the windbreaker is a good idea? Is there some way of carrying it without having the type that folds into a belt pouch?
