It seems that one of the biggest deterrents to cycling in Portland has been rain. It seems a bit strange, since it rains quite often, and people feel perfectly comfortable walking in the rain, often without umbrellas. In any case, it seems like this has been changing lately, and I’ve been seeing normal spring numbers of people out on bikes, on days when it has been alternating between dumping rain, hail, and sunshowers all day. For instance, in this set of photos, taken on my way home from work yesterday, it had been dumping hail so hard you could barely see about 15 minutes prior to me taking the pictures. Really, rain is no big deal. Put on a hat, put on a raincoat or poncho, off you go. Have a lovely day!
