getting ready for an afternoon rain ride.

getting ready for an afternoon ride. it was 55 degrees so not horrible with really good gore-tex shake dry jackets and rain pants and rubber boots. did not need gloves and that helps. I had already did two commutes in the rain today this was 13 miles. wife said she forgot her water I just told her to stick her tongue out. it was 51 when we got home not too bad. fright to take a a pic of us all wet but it would be hard with wet hands.

More power to you willingly biking in the rain like that. I can't even get a stoker for dry days these days!

Have you had any problems with your ebike and rain? I was on the annual North Dakota CaNDak ride in August and our first day was 60 miles of light rain. An ebike rider said she lost power half way through and had to tough it out the rest of the way "all by herself." Apparently the control module didn't like the rain. It dried out and was functioning the next day.

Mudflaps down to within 2" of the ground, both wheels. I make mine out of that rubber stair tread material, comes on a roll at the hardware store. Cut into appropriate trapezoidal shape, maybe 3"-4" wide at the base, ribs running vertically A foot of it will last you the rest of your life. I bolt it on, shape with a hair dryer or heat gun if necessary.
Results matter
