Should I? It's Saturday, with the forecast at this point being rain showers, temps up to mid-70s, prob. of precip. = 70%. Just wondering if anyone else has done a century under similar circumstances, and either (a) swore "never again" or (b) had a grand time despite sub-optimal weather.
Also, what key piece of equipment am I likely to need that I don't know about? I have a rain jacket and I'm thinking I might get either a rear fender or a rack that attaches to the seatpost, and otherwise go with the usual stuff. Anything else?
Background: I'm 59 and have been riding for 5 years. Just did my first 100-mile ride a couple of weeks ago but have done several organized/supported metrics this year and last. Always have enjoyed them and had no difficulties.
