Sorry, that wasn't my point. Checking a weather report online just before I leave in the morning allows me to decide (a) whether to wear the wet-weather gear, take it with me without wearing it, or just leave it at home; and (b) whether to clip on the mudguards. As you know I always ride to work, regardless of the weather.
My mistake. I didn't mean to infer that you decide (to ride or not to ride) based on the BOM forecast.
But I used to.
