Dodging The Roadkill: Rain Riding

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – I’ve only been on this journey since January, 2016.  I’ve avoided rain like the plaque.  All of my trips were planned around the weather forecast.  If I was visiting friends in Texas, then I would check the weather between here and there and if there wasn’t a clear path, then I waited until there was.

What a WHIMP!

The bottom line is that the more you ride and the more miles you log, you are GOING to ride in the rain!  I don’t mean a drizzle or two, I mean a full on downpour.

The decision to continue riding during a storm is entirely up to the rider, and you don’t want to be full on STUPID, but sometimes you just get caught.  If you’ve prepared to encounter the rain, meaning you have “geared up” for it, then it’s no big deal.  You carry on.
