Don't look at the weather forecast

That’s my bike commuting tip of the day. Yesterday morning it was warm and pleasant, with temperatures in the low to mid-60’s. As I prepared for my ride to work, I checked the weather forecast, and it called for cooler and rain as the day progressed. I decided to go ahead and ride anyway, and packed up my rain gear to prepare for the worst.

It rained on and off throughout the day, but I got lucky during the window of my ride home time. There were dry skies, and a light, warm breeze.

So, don’t check the weather forecast. Just be prepared for any conditions, don’t give yourself additional excuses, and don’t miss out on unexpectedly great rides.
