The Warrior of the Wet

It's been a little while since I've had a wet ride home, and indeed as someone I spoke to today said, it really doesn't happen very often.

It also meant I had a chance to try on the Ridge waterproof I got with my love to shop voucher, in an actual wet cycling situation. I thought with it being rather shorter than the unsexy kag, I'd end up with water running off the back of it down the back of my equally unsexy waterproof trousers and give me a wet and cold backside.

Luckily it didn't, and it wasn't as sweaty as I worried it would be. It wasn't mega rainy however, but at least at this level it kept me warm and my buttocks dry. A bit of good news for winter.

  1. Your new waterproofs kept you dry and didn't cause you to sweat. Now then, there's luxury.

  2. Glad to hear your new jacket kept you dry :)

  3. Dry buttocks are a thing to be celebrated :o). A good waterproof is worth it’s weight in gold to outdoors folk.

  4. I wasn't going hard enough for it to make me sweaty, suspect it will, they all do!

  5. How times have changed since the days when we either wore ordinary winter clothes or covered self and half the bike with a wind catching bell tent.
