Some nice shoe covers to keep your feet dry..Clark said:
Nothing will keep you dry. Dress to stay warm. In the 50s I would wear a cycling cap to keep some off the water off my glasses, one thin under shirt, one thick under shirt, jersey, wind vest (maybe under the jersey), arm warmers, bibs, knee warmers and booties. - TFClark said:
Personally, I wouldn't wear much. You're going to be bad off if you're wearing all kinds of clothing and it gets wet -- you'll freeze your butt off anyway. You're better off in shorts and a jersey with some arm warmers (easy enough to take off if you get soaked), but I'd nix the knee or leg warmers. Shave those puppies and slap some hot cream and then vasoline on them. The vasoline won't really insulate, but if you can keep the water off your legs, you'll stay warmer. In fact, I'd probably forgo the armwarmers and slap hot cream and vasoline on my arms, too.Clark said:
Wear the same thing you wear when you train in the rain. You do train in bad conditions sometimes dont you?sianne said:...Speaking from experience, I'd wear less. One less wet layer you have to peel off afterwards.

Nothing's gonna keep you dry, so accept the fact that you'll be wet and cold. Pick things that insulate when they're wet.
