Thirty years ago, that wold not be news for me. Last night on my 30 mile ride a squall came up, and I ended up in some pretty hard rain and wind. I first headed for a nearby overhang porch on an under construction building. After about 5 minutes there, I remembered that I had a waterproof light jacket in my "trunk", so I put that on and got going. It only rained for about 15 more minutes, then turned pretty decent. I discovered that its not bad riding in the rain (I used to really like it), and my Shimano 105 long reach brakes work really great in the rain.
