A front mud flap helps a lot.
Of course, my feet were still soaked because at about 5 minutes before the end of my ride this morning, it started pouring and the water running down my legs went straight into the shoe.
I don't really care much, I've gotten to where I don't even care if I'm wet or not, but it's a good idea to keep the mud off me so I don't track it into the building, so fenders are a must. Plus I saw a lot of oil slicks on the road, and there's some roadkill that's been ripening for months that the water is washing over, so I'd rather keep that stuff from spraying up at me.
Work: the 8 hours that separates bike rides.
