Getting acclimated to driving in the rain is a skill that I would not treat lightly. You don’t mention which part of which State you are from, I’ll go by goggle and guess Utah, but I would recommend finding a way to ride in rain somewhere and see how your cycle and you behave in it.
I bought a cycle rain jacket years ago. It is vented yet…[Read more]
As mentioned, PBV’s newsletters detail how they handle bikes (and trikes). They recommend they be boxed. They don’t require it. Unboxed bikes are hung in their semi, floor-to-ceiling, using bungee cords.
Here’s what they look like.
