Due to climatic change, or the fact that I always remember the summers of my youth, this year has been diabolical for Riding. It seems that my riding clobber at present is shorts, preferably the ones that cover my knees, the top quality cycling top thats wicks away Moisture, and the goretex. We have had a rather cool and damp summer this side of the pond, and I am getting fed up with it.
It still doesn't stop me riding though, although I may give it a miss tomorrow, due to the high winds coming in with the rain. Its just about bearable to do a wet ride, but the gales forecast for tomorrow means that the rain will be horizontal and probably in the face.
Cold doesn't bother me too much, except on the hands so rain proof gloves are the answer for this, but just a tip to the bypass recoveries out there, the extremities do not get the circulation required so keep the feet and hands well covered.
I cope with the rain, mainly due to the goretex, but how do the rest of you get on with wet conditions?
