Finally, a wet morning, first wet ride since before September. 6C (43F) so it wasn't too cold. Wore my shoes inside a plastic grocery bag inside my booties (which aren't even water resistant) and my feet were toasty and dry. My tights are microfleece and seemed to repel the light rain so my legs were essentially dry and warm.
Forecast is for rain through the day, including the evening, so Halloween will be wet.
Forgot to mention that I nearly ran over a stupid pedestrian jay-walking yesterday who didn't seem to care that I was moving fairly quickly down the hill: he was facing me, I had on two bright front lights and a high-viz jacket so he couldn't have not seem me, he just didn't seem to care. I yelled at him when I got close.
Of course, it was dark this morning and so I had my Cree T6 light on, on its brightest setting, but it was diminished by the light rain and didn't light the road as well as it does on dry days. Furthermore, the rain on my glasses "sparkled" in the light of oncoming vehicles. The result was that I couldn't see very well when there were oncoming vehicles and had to slow down so I didn't swerve off the road onto the soft shoulder. It wasn't a very enjoyable ride, not because of the rain, but because of the inability to see well. Maybe I should get a brighter light (I've seen what others have recommended) but it was only in today's conditions that my current light wasn't sufficient. It's been 4 riding days since I have charged the battery so I'm charging it today and if tomorrow morning also is rainy, I may find another route that has street lights: I needed today's ride to achieve the 900km in October challenge I had set myself, this afternoon's ride will get me only about 1km over 900 so I couldn't wimp out this morning.
