Rain

This past weekend, Hurricane Arthur hit the east coast, bringing torrential rains from North Carolina to Maine.

This got us thinking about the special challenges of riding on rainy days in summer.

Most riders avoid the rain, others learn how to deal with it.  But sometimes you can't avoid it, whether commuting or taking in a scenic cruise. 

If you ride long and often enough, sooner or later, you'll be caught in a sun shower or full-out downpour.

You can try to wait it out. However, with the right gear, special attention to road conditions and your surroundings, and a relaxed attitude, you can be more confident while riding in the rain.
