I know this isn't exciting for people who live in places like Portland and Seattle, but for us Sacramentians, rain is a Big Deal. People freak out when it starts getting wet outside. Heck, we think that Ugg boots are appropriate footwear for times like these.
However, we rode in the rain and lived to tell you about it.
We are working on ordering a rain cover from Blaq Designs, more for the very crisp mornings than the actual rain, but it will make the boys more comfortable and that's a good thing.
Our friends Neil and Kara just got a Nihola from Practical Cycle which comes with a great weather cover. I got to give the bike a little test ride and LOVED it! Compared to the Christiania I have ridden in Portland a couple of times, it's a world of difference. It has a much smaller turn radius and feels very nimble and easy to control. I could see my mom feeling comfortable riding our boys around in something like this.
