If Greg can ride in all that snow, I can surely ride in some rain. I waited for mid morning when the rain was ”light” but it was definitely consistent and with a little headwind if at times felt more that ”light”.

I was quite determined to get a ride today and am pleased that I did. The only thing about lightly raining when I ride is that my glasses get all those drops and they are hard to keep wiped away without smearing the lenses. I did a shopping errand which I love, that got me on my bike in the rain. And I did something a little different. After locking my bike outside, under cover, I took my panniers into the store, hooked them on the inside of the shopping cart and was then able to pass up the paper bag at check out, and put the goods directly into my panniers. A game changer for me. No need to transfer my goods outside from the bags to panniers and no bag (that cost 8 cents each) to then dispose of. Why have I not thought to do this all along!

    Lots of interesting R’s and B’s.
    The raindrops on your helmet make a great photo
    Your Bike Friday has lots of Red and Black too.

    Rain is a great theme for R, – if only you didn’t have to get wet. Glad those rain legs are serving you well. Groceries straight into the panniers is a very good solution. Here I can roll the shopping cart out to where my bike is, Again no Ned for extra packaging.

      I LOVE my Rainlegs ;’-). I thank you for the positive review. I have used them several times, and each time I get more used to putting them on and off, so have become more proficient at that.

      I do roll the groceries out to my bike, but now everything is already in the panniers ? With no need to transfer. I line my panniers with a reusable bag as well. For me this works really well.
