  1. After I listened to this podcast it made me so paranoid I took my rain gear with me on a clear day …. it rained 60mins into the ride. Thanks guys.

  2. Thanks for the Florida specific wet riding tips: railroad tracks, bridges, oil slicks, pot holes, I have opportunity to cross all of the above. Hurricance season is coming up (wet and windy). Thanks also for saving me from wasting money on rain gear.

  3. I rode one double century in 2011, where it rained for half of the ride. I was on Hwy 175, and the sky opened, and it poured. It rained so hard, I stopped for 3 minutes for it to slow down. I figured, I was already wet, so why not stop, get more wet, but at least I’ll be able to see in front of me.

    I concur with you … once you’re out there, just keep riding, as long as you’re not in a hailstorm.

    I live in Florida and the biggest problem with the rain in Florida is not so much the rain, but the lightning that come with it. The scariest experience on a bike for me was not with a car, or crashing on the side of the road, it was with a lightning bolt that landed about an eight of a mile from me and the electrostatic electricity reached me and gave me a mild shock, not pleasant!!!

    • I have had the same thing happen. It was not pleasant at all. Unfortunately we get what we think are just rain showers that turn into thunderstorms. I have had to wait it out on some unsuspecting home owner’s porch in the past and call to get picked up before getting struck! – Coach Rob
