Wet weather riding..

December 9, 2016

Having spent the last week touring Europe in cold and wet climates, it has occurred that no matter how you dress for the occasion, you can stay warm for the majority of the ride but staying dry has a whole new problem. You can wear as much waterproof gear as you like but when you persistently ride at speeds in driving rain with traffic spray hitting you added to a duration of several hours, less in some cases, your wet weather gear has exceeded the "waterproof" testing by a minimum of 6x so begins to let water seep, in my case flood, in to your layers which in turn makes you wet and therefore cold. I have tried many a trick to stay warm and dry but unless I cower away from heavy rain it's a losing battle...

What's your tried and trusted method of staying dry?
