Cycling in the rain.

For the first time since I got the bike I opted to cycle to work in the rain. I usually leave the bike when I know it will rain or it is raining. This is because I don’t have proper rain gear and I don’t carry spare clothes so it means staying damp for the morning. However it wasn’t raining hard and my hat and raincoat kept of most of the rain. I would not have been any drier if I had just used an umbrella. I was fine and the rain had stopped when I got to Seven Sisters.

I decided to do this because winter is coming and I have got to get used to poor weather and poor light so might as well get used to light rain.
