Springtime in January?

The weather here in Portland is often unpredictable, but lately it’s downright warm.  The good news is that cyclists are hitting the streets in droves.  At 52 degrees, it’s enough to leave behind those insulated gloves and cast aside your fleece.  Unfortunately, the rain continues and even breathable rain gear can trap a lot of sweat.  Solution: rain capes.

Rain capes offer a simple and convenient way to stay dry in the rain.  Also, they allow plenty of air flow, so sweat will evaporate rather than build up.  Used in combination with decent fenders, a rain cape provides total coverage, so you can buy other cool bike accessories with the money you were saving for those pricey rain pants and booties.
Want a Rain Cape?  Try one of ours for $65.00.
