The truth about cycling in the rain
January 11, 2008
There is nothing that tempts me to catch the train to work more than a howling wind lashing rain against the windows of our conservatory as I’m having my morning coffee.
However, once I’m out there, it’s always a surprise as to how the expectation doesn’t match the reality.
The rain is never as hard and the wind is never as ferocious as they seemed when I was sipping on my morning brew.
The key of course is to also dress well.
I think it’s the Scandinavians who say something like there’s no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing.
Once you’re layered up with a good dryshell on the outside then everything seems so much more pleasant.
