Not sure if you're from the Lancaster area (I'm not) but I did my first ride out there a couple months ago. I didn't have fenders on the bike I took, and it was a huge problem. It started raining, which normally isn't a big deal, but there was so much horse manure on the road from all the buggies that EVERYTHING (me, my clothes, my water bottles, my saddle, my handlebar tape) was having eau de crap sprayed on it for a couple hours. I couldn't get rid of the smell for a long time, and I even threw out the pair of gloves I wore that day.
Summary: buy fenders if you don't have them already.
