Ok so I'm not really "new" to biking as I've been doing it all my life (it was how I got to and from school in high school..) and especially more since I started living in the city. But I just recently got my first road bike and I'm not use to competing with cars on the road. I have some general questions about commuting basically.
Is it better to try and stay all the way on the right side of the lane so cars can pass you?
What do you guys do about commuting in the rain? Will it make parts rust up?
Do you use clipless pedals? My bike came with pedals with toe clips, and I'm wondering if it's worth it to buy clipless pedals and shoes because it seems rather pricey...
