    What to wear for Livesstrong Challange

    I was looking for suggestion as to what to I should wear during the LIVESTRONG challange.

    shoe covers/no shoe covers
    shorts/pants
    longsleeves/shortsleeves
    fenders/no fenders

    This is my first centry ride and am uncertain what to wear given the possibility of rain.

    Thanks and see you on the road!

    Yes.

    shorts/pants

    Yes.

    longsleeves/shortsleeves

    Yes.

    fenders/no fenders

    No harm in putting them on in case it rains.

    Pays to be prepared for a little bit of everything on a century ride. Handlebar bag or rack bag comes in handy for stowing your stuff.

    Given the variables - weather, elevation, specific areas covered, etc it would be best to be prepared for pretty much anything tomorrow.

    I have been vacillating between riding the heavy slow touring bike with full fenders, fat tires, and racks vs the fast light race bike with skinny tires, race blade fenders, and butt bag only. No decision yet. If it's raining heavily in the am, I'll probably take the Trucker...

    For clothing, I will be bringing:

    Shorts/short sleeve jersey
    arm warmers
    leg warmers
    shoe booties
    wool socks
    cycling cap (keeps rain out of the eyes)
    fingerless gloves (may be a mistake depending on cold rain or not)
    Rain shell (again vacillating between light summer rain shell and full on winter shell)

    If you have fenders - bring 'em!

    As always, YMMV - good riding tomorrow!
