Temperature at departure = 60° F (16° C)
Well, here is my solution to next week's Bike to Work Week if the rain comes back.
The kit is available at http://www.shuttlebike.com -- too bad I don't speak Italian.
The rain stopped yesterday afternoon and the streets were, for the most part, dry this morning. I had to skip riding on part of the path because it was either covered with running water or 6" deep mud. No matter, it was just nice to get back on the bike. Rivers and streams are going to continue to rise over the next day or so -- a lot of flood preparation segments on the local news. We should be fine, but I'm really ready for things to dry out for a bit.
