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
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!
