This time of year riding outside does not work for me some days because I do not like to ride in the rain.
On tours I have not avoided taking off in downpours, but for training I would rather not start out in the rain. If rain is a possibility I head out prepared. I will check the weather report before I leave the house. All my rain gear has been trial tested in actual conditions at home. I do not want to discover that the gear does not work while I am experiencing a wet day away from comforts.
On a tour I have rain gear as the top layer of the pack for easy access or in the handlebar bag. If
