It can be a lot of fun if it’s not too cold for sure. Worst rainstorm I ever got caught in was finishing off the hairshirt ride two years ago. That huge storm that became famous at the G20 on Sunday ended up keeping us company All the way back in from Hamilton. What a shit show that ride turned into, hah
Yeah, it’s not so bad when it’s hot out. Being caught a few times on the trails and on the road. Worst part of it is the helmet juice running into your eyes. Had to drive home basically naked a couple of times. Everything I was wearing was soaked and covered in mud. Both of us had to sit on my floor mats.
I left work early one day last Summer to try beat the rain, but it didn’t work out. It was nice and sunny and hot for the first half, but I got dumped on by the clouds for the second half hour. It was one of those windshield wipers on high and still not doing much kind of rains. Once soaked it was really quite pleasant with the sun and warm rain, except for trying to not drown with all the water running down my face.
