The rain and wind are amazing, as well as a dangerous combination. Riding in this great duo is sure to give you an astonishing experience. I luckily enjoyed my bike ride in both wind and rain. It was both fantastic, along with dangerous.
It was a road which my best friend and I decide to take. The travel was around 3.5 hours. But due to the rain and heavy wind, the interruptions made it continue until four hours. I don’t drive. I was the passenger the entire time. My friend, who successfully drove for around four hours without taking a five minutes break, resulted in great exhaustion at the end. We learned many things while experiencing our journey. The points which aa rider needs to keep in mind will have a mention here. Therefore, to know what are the necessary point which one needs to keep in mind are here as follows.
Helmet The Primary Object For Riding
We all know that the helmet is the main lead while one takes the ride. Not only for the rider but also the passenger should be a helmet. The other most important point to keep in mind before preparing the road ride or the ride in the rain is that the helmet should cover the whole face. The ones which give coverage to only half of the face are not at all good to take in rain ride. Therefore, try keeping both sets of a helmet.
Clothes To Enjoy The Rain And Wind While Riding:
Walking and running in the rain is very different than riding a motorbike in the rain. And with the wind, it becomes more hazardous. Therefore one must choose fool sleeve clothing to go the ride. If possible, one can oft for taking the chance to buy the biker dress. When one rides with half or quarter sleeve, the outside temperature, even in the rain, is sure to damage the skin by burning it. Other than this problem, the more painful fact is that the drops of rainwater seem like pi spoking your hands and feet. And trust me, it is very painful to continue until the end of the trip without proper clothing. The bikers’ uniform is perfect for traveling since it provides the rider with full protection. Other than a jacket on the upper body, one must wear a cover pair of shoes like a sneaker or a book. For the raindrops also feels painful in there too.
Maintaining A Safe Distance While Riding In The Rain And Wind
Riding your bike while there is massive rain and a forceful wind might make it difficult for the rider to ride with a proper distance. Therefore maintaining a safe distance becomes hazardous. A road trip or a city ride both become hard for maintaining a safe distance with other vehicles around. Therefore, try riding at the pace, which matches the speed of the other vehicles around. And always try maintaining the safe range. With rain, the rods get slippery, therefore try riding the with the minimal speed matching the velocity with other heavy trucks or cars around.
The Vision And Visibly During The Rain And The Wind:
Another important problem which faces with the rain and the wind together is the visibility problem. With heavy rain, the glass of the helmet gives you blurry vision. If you are not careful, you will end up meeting a fatal accident. Try sweeping the glass whenever requires and whenever the path looks empty on the front. Sweeping the glass cover of the helmet is the only possible solution in this situation.
