I went out this morning for my daily hourly ride. It was raining constantly but I really didn't want to miss my daily routine. I got completely soaked! I guess I need to rethink my cycling gear for those rainy days. I would appreciate some pointers as to what to buy.
I wear biking shorts under an UA cold gear tights, merino wool socks, and regular running sneakers. I use polartec gloves, and had a merino wool layer under a PI wind breaker. I had a skull cap on.
The results: my gloves, socks, and skull cap were completely soaked; and my fingers, toes, and head were cold. My torso was actually dry.
By the way, I have the NiteRider lights mounted to my helmet, so I guess a helmet cover would be out?
