Let the flooding commence!

What is this rain? I switched to clipless pedals today just for the toe-drains on my cleats (shoes). Tech campus is FLOODED. Happy riding everyone! Be safe and visible.

A few tips for riding in the rain:

  • When cornering, stay away from any painted lines or lane markers, these become VERY slick when they are wet.
  • When you get home after riding through a lot of water try and dry as much of your bike as you can by removing wheels, tires, pedals, any bolt covers or caps; this will help prevent rust.
  • Wear clothing that will keep you dry, you will stay warm regardless.
  • Wear reflective clothing anything so those lumbering steel and plastic things with motors will pay more attention to you than the epic puddles they are trying to spray everywhere.
