Chicago in the spring can be challenging (though it has been unseasonably warm). This season brings the weather man's credibility to the level of the psychics and tea-leaf readers. Case in point: I was planning to post this today because it was supposed to be rainy, but now it says clear skies the whole the day (not that I am complaining).
My ABSOLUTE least favorite weather condition is rain, specifically cold rain, and I have been looking for ways to cheer myself up while riding in it other than my normal use of positive self deception (i.e. the rain make my skin look fresh and dewy, or rain water does wonders for my hair).
My quest has been to find the the perfect rain trench because hopping on my bike, wearing a bright rain coat, is a perfect antidote to rainy day doldrums. I was thrilled when I found this Happy Rainy Days trench on the site Cycle Style. (thanks Mary for the Christmas gift!). I also love my Saltwater sandals which are built to withstand any amount of water. I just found out that the Happy Rainy Day brand has United States distribution on the site Hip in the Rain, so check it out.
I pretty much want everything on the Cycle style site (bike wine rack, why not!)
~ Happy riding everyone!
