Rainy Days

Ok, this rain is relentless! What started as a ride-to-trails then slay single-track and back home this morning turned into a road ride with our fendered steeds. We ended up discovering some trails around the Cuduhay side of the Oak Leaf Trail and decided to do a bit of off-roading on our 23c slicks (shown in the sloppy 'action shot' above).

On the way back, the rain got a little heavier. At that moment, like so many moments in my riding life, I regretted not purchasing proper rain/weather gear! There is a lot of active wear companies out there and you can get a headache just filtering through them. Amidst all of them, we just picked up a relatively new line out of Portland named Showers Pass. Their products seem like a great fit to our sometimes heinous Wisconsin weather. There will be more to come but for now, check out some pieces that we are currently carrying.

Oh I wished I had this jacket this morning! If you are like me and ride year round, it is a smart investment to get some good durable clothing for the elements (I should probably take my own advice). A little rain or snow shouldn't keep us from our saddles!
