Riding in the Rain

This month’s Walk.Bike.Rider newsletter features some great tips for beating cabin fever during the Northwest’s notoriously gloomy winter.  While it may be damp during this time of the year, average high temperatures of 46 in January, 50 in February, and 53 in March mean that anyone can exercise outdoors with the right gear.  Compared to temps in the eastern US, our winters are downright balmy! 

Check out Commutebybike.com for some gear suggestions that help bike commuters tame the rain.  And our friends over at the National Center for Safe Routes to School have similar suggestions for pedestrians.  

With all those post-holiday sales right around the corner, this is a great time to gear-up and prepare to beat Seasonal Affective Disorder by walking and biking in our liquid sunshine.
