Been riding in the rain all day! SKS longboard fenders rule! I stayed dry and comfy in my Pearl Izumi raingear too. Pretty happy to have a chance to test out my clothing system now before the cold/damp of BC/YT/AK. In Council, ID. Headed up the road a few more miles to a campground.
Got an early start today in light rain. As the morning progressed it began to rain harder and harder. I was very comfortable in my rain kit though. I stopped in Midvale, ID for a cinnamon roll and some coffee. Best cinnamon roll so far too! I rode on in the rain to Cambridge, ID. I picked up my resupply and repacked it in the laundry mat. I decided to keep biking as it was only noon. It looked like it was going to stop raining, but it didn't. I stopped in a ranchers hay barn to get rain gear on again. It was even thundering a bit out. I picked up beer and groceries in Council, ID. I ended up riding on to Evergreen Campground. I had to climb one more pass first and on the north side it rained in buckets. I am happy my rain gear is neon yellow as I was very visible to vehicles and my SKS Longboard fenders kept my bike and me dry. I set up a bomber camp in the closed campground.
