Riding the Storm Out 12Comments

It was 40 degrees and raining sideways along the Puget Sound coastline. Cedars bent to the will of the wind, and we rode North on the Lower Magnolia Loop. With an eye on the clouds we stayed ahead of the rain until we turned back South, returning to Alki and met up with @mzsitka. She didn’t want to get cold so we didn’t chat for too long.
Pretty in Pink
When the rain struck our faces in sheets like cold wet-naps, my choice in kit worked well. Nanoflex bib tights and a Gabba combined with an eVent shell made a neutral microclimate that beaded up good. The bootie-boots setup didn’t allow any soak through either.
Beaded up good, with the DWR doing its job
