Purposely Riding Off Road During Heavy Rain?
Does anyone purposely go out to ride trails or dirt roads in heavy rain?
I know the forecast for tomorrow is 100% rain and I was planning on riding dirt forest roads. I have to ride ~73 miles of mostly paved roads (includes ~25 miles of Interstate Hwy).
It would seem there would be experiences of "light rain" or perhaps "no rain" so, maybe this could be a great experience after all.
My wife thinks I'm a little crazy - that doesn't bother me but with a clean and well lubed chain, will all the water and dirt from a long ride . . . never mind, I can get more chains/sprockets.
Oh - one last question, which helmet? I have on road and off road to pick from and I was thinking they both have advantages for wet weather.
