So I rode home this morning in the pouring rain. I figured it would happen sooner or later. I had my rain pants with me but learned a few things:

  • Pack the visor for my helmet in my rack trunk
  • The cycling jacket I ordered from REI will come in handy next time
  • The water-resistant pants I have are not waterproof
  • St. Paul needs more storm drain entrances per mile
  • Driveways from raised parking lots vent a lot of water

Overall, not a horrible experience and important things stayed dry for me. I wasn't uncomfortable riding and I bet my white mesh t-shirt made a cute site for passersby of appropriate orientation.
