Biking in the Rain

As we wait for spring to bloom, it’s been rainy here in Madison. 

A light rain or soft mist is a welcome bit of refreshing humidity after the cold dryness of winter. But add in the recent wind and cold and some rainy days I wouldn't mind staying home with a book. That is, if I didn't have places to go. 

Having invested in some decent rain gear gives me the peace of mind that whatever the weather, I will arrive relatively dry at my destination. The rain isn't really much of an inconvenience then - on account of the extended winter, I’m still in the habit of grabbing a hat, gloves, scarf, jacket, and boots before heading out, so it's no big deal to add rain pants to the list.
