Wet Weather Cyclists

Winter is here!
I took these pictures this morning on Wilson St. Despite the wet weather there were heaps of people braving the elements. Personally I love riding in the rain, splashing through the puddles and sucking in all that lovely fresh, clean air. I love the idea of actually being part of the living world. Actually experiencing the different seasons instead of riding around in an air conditioned box.

It turns out I'm not Robinson Crusoe either. Over on Sydney Cyclist everyone is discussing the joys of riding in the rain.

So don't be a fair weather cyclist. Get yourself some mudguards and a raincoat and get into it. I can promise you that you will enjoy it. If you want some tips have a look at the Ultracyclist's suggestions.

I was very surprised (given the rain and that most are quite new commuters) that when I arrived at work this morning there was no room for me at the bike racks!

Good to see an increase in girls out on the road too recently - even in the rain - yay!

Nice photos:)
