4. Waterproof clothing
Use an appropriate waterproof jacket to prevent water and mud from getting into your body. A waterproof jacket will make a difference for your trip in wet weather conditions, especially if you ride for a few hours. Waterproof clothing including waterproof shoes, tight-fitting clothes… are good options to protect your body safe by outside impacts.
5. Moderate speed on a mountain bike
Unless you are a mountain bike champion, you can ride at a fast speed when it rains. The best way to control speed when cycling on muddy and slippery terrain is to ride at a moderate pace. The reason for speed reduction is because the wet terrain with high speed make you difficult to control. Especially when going down a slope at a very high speed, speed control will increase safety.
6. Wear gloves when riding a mountain bike on a rainy day
Gloves are important accessory that every “climbing biker” should own. Gloves prevent sweat and keep your hands from sliding off the handle. Especially when riding on wet days, if you don’t want to slip on a bumpy rock and leave a wound on you, prepare a pair of gloves so you can hold the steering wheel more tightly.
Gloves help you easily grip the steering wheel and avoid losing control in the rainy season when riding a mountain bike.
7. Wear glasses to prevent dirt
During the rainy and windy days, it is more difficult to observe the surroundings. You ride in muddy terrain conditions, dirt is easy to be on your eye which keep the vision arround you hard to cover and make you feel uncomfortable. Possess yourself a pair of transparent glass that can keep the view ahead always clear.
Glasses prevent mud from entering the eyes when riding a MTB bike in the rainy season.
