Too much red wine
That would be my #1 tip too!
Oh, you're still there?
2 major issues: equipment and riding
- waterproof riding gear - a hassle in warmer weather
; don't bother. Even "breathable" fabrics don't breathe that well. If you're not going to get cold due to being saturated (above 15 degrees or so?), it may not be worth it. In colder weather
it's a bit more tricky. I'm a huge fan of merino base layers (for your torso at least), since these don't get so cold when they're wet
. A waterproof jacket can be useful - one that breathes and/or has vents (under the arms). Woolen beanie under the helmet too! Shoe covers make a lot of sense even if they're just reducing the wind chill.
- mudguards - obviously
- good lights - more important in bad conditions!
- probably better just to do a search for wet weather
riding tips. Basically, BE SAFE! Your stopping distance and that of other road users is severely impacted. Everyone's vision is impaired. Many car drivers don't cope well.
- tram tracks - of course it won't happen to you, unless you think it won't happen to you.
