I almost always do my rides, even if it is raining. I live in the bay area so the weather usually doesn't get too bad during the winter. (hopefully the storm from last week was an exception).

If the wind gusts are extremely strong or the visibility extremely poor, then I might cancel my ride and do a workout on the trainer or rollers. There was one day the wind in my area was so strong that it was breaking small branches off trees and pulling bushes out and tossing them in the road. It was a pain to ride that day and keep the bike upright. It just wasn't fun. A bit of rain though never stops me. I'd rather ride outside than be on the trainer.
I see you're in pleasanton. I'm next door in Livermore, so if you've ever done Patterson pass road, you know about the wind!!!
