3 Tips for Cycling in the Rain

November 17, 2010

This week, inspired by two days of downpour in Vancouver, we bring you 3 tips for riding in the rain:

1. Acceptance – You’re going to get wet and that’s okay.

2.  Just get going – Once you’re on your way you warm up, making the trip a lot more comfortable.

3.  Friends – Not sure if it’s the comradery or the competition, but having friends cycle with you makes it more fun (and a more difficult commitment to break).

Of course decent rain gear helps too (but that’s kind of obvious).

Let us know your top tip for riding in the rain!

Crazy Sustainable Commute – full length

On Friday we mentioned that the Fairware Team participated in the Crazy Sustainable Commute, a crazy fun event all about raising awareness on taking sustainable transportation to and from work. 5 of our staff participated by riding tiny bikes borrowed from some really cool kids we know (thanks guys!). Below is a video featuring clips from our trip.
