Rain is a bit of a four-letter word among cyclists but here’s a little secret: biking in the rain can be fun. And it’s certainly better than losing a day of your tour to bad weather!
I was thinking about this the other day as I was coming home from work on a particularly wet evening. Here in Holland, the rain didn’t seem to be affecting cyclists at all. The streets and bike paths were as full as ever.
Inspired by the tenacity of Dutch cyclists, I put together this series of articles about bike touring in the rain. Read about:
- Essential equipment for rainy day cycling
- Tips for bike touring in the rain
- Caring for your bike after a day of wet riding.
Master these 3 areas and you’ll never have to feel blue again when the rain starts to pour down. Just get out there and enjoy the ride!
