I just had my bike tuned up and went out for a ride yesterday. The bike felt like it was new. It was my first time on it in awhile, so I only want a few miles. The feel of the wind on my face was great and I vowed to get on the bike everyday to get back in shape and lose some weight.
I was raring to go this morning! Then I looked out the window. It was raining. What a disappointment....
The weather is going to clear later today, but by the time it does, I have a Chiropractor appt. and work. By the time I get my 2nd wind, it'll be dark and I don't ride my bike in the dark.
I have lots of choices for exercise, but my brain is wrapped around biking right now. Very frustrating!
What would you do?
If must ride and it's raining then maybe can get the rack that you put your regular bike on and spin in the living room

What is wrong with riding your bike in the rain? It's just water. It can be quite refreshing.
Either that or buy some lights.
You will find out time for it.. dn wrry... Just because it rained today , does not mean ... you cannot go out to ride the bike everyday...
It depends on the person. If they really want to ride, they would go for it outdoors. If keeping dry and away from slick roads is a primary concern, then they should put the rear wheel up on an indoor rack and ride away in the comfort of home or spin at the gym.
I just bike in the rain. It's never caused me any trouble.
Lucky you. But if don't live in the country, city riding is dangerous because of all the oil slicked up with the rain. A recumbent bike sucks in the rain. Metal man holes I avoid in the rain. Just too dangerous if in the city during a rain.
If it's a light drizzle - and the roads aren't slicked up with oil = yes.
BTW that white paint on the road - very slick. Stupidest idea ever not to put some traction sand on the paint.
