Does anyone know if something is available to cover your shoes that is waterproof?
This year I've decided not to let minor wet days stop me from riding, misting rain or clear morning but wet roads from major downpour (I still won't ride in major downpours, day off on those ones). Last weekend I took the beater bike out in the rain and didn't really mind getting wet. Had a rain jacket. My full piece gloves kept my hands fairly dry. Sunglasses were a bit of a misty mess and rain on my face/eyes was a minor annoyance, but I could cope. The only thing that drove me crazy was that my feet were absolutely soaked. It was the most uncomfortable thing, having my socks soaked to the bone. After about an hour every stroke would ring water out of my socks. I'm also worried because my shoes were so wet they may stretch/wear out faster. It took all night to dry out for the next day.
Anyone use or recommend a pair of weatherproof lightweight booties? Not winter ones, just for rain. What do you B.C. or Oregon or Washington people do for clothing in the rain? I've read some of your stories about riding in downpours or regular rides in the rain during rainy season.
Thanks in advance
