How do you dry out when you get to work?
I had a great ride home this morning after the night shift. I go caught in the rain as I expected. It poured steadily and beautifully the whole way home.
Of course, after 90 minutes, my feet were absolutely soaked. I have a nice set of Nashbar neoprene booties, but after that much rain, even they couldn't hold it off. By the time I got home, my socks were soaked and squishy. No biggie. The rest of my clothes dry quickly, but drying out the socks would take forever.
If I ride to work, how do I dry out my socks etc? I suppose I could just hang them up near a heater or something, and hope that 8 hrs later they'll be dry.
Is there a way to waterproof your booties? Any ideas, without having to buy gore-tex, or putting bags on my feet?
Maybe if I soak them with some of that waterproofing spray for shoes, etc?
