The golden leaves, balmy days and cool misty mornings have made for some lovely fall bike commuting. Yesterday I came back to the Portland Building and every single bike rack (about 50) in the covered outdoor lobby was full.
As usual, I was stunned by the beauty of our city and the Steel Bridge on my ride this morning. About 20 geese swam under the bridge as I got closer. What a great, healthy and free way to start the day!
The rain is supposed to arrive this weekend, but that doesn't mean that your riding season needs to end. A pair of rain paints and fenders make for a drier commuting experience, although my SmartTrips Downtown co-pilot argues for eschewing rain pants and packing a change of clothes.
Here are some tips for riding in the rain.
