7 Tips When Riding In The Rain

Rainy days are no fun for anyone. But there's actually something fun about riding an ebike in this weather: the thrill of it. So if you're going to be riding on one of these days, we've compiled 7 tips that may help you out and reduce the number of accidents and near-accidents caused by rain.

2. Don't forget about reflectors.

Reflectors won't make you as visible as lights, but they still help drivers notice who's coming towards them on the road. Reflectors will also protect your body from any kind of impact caused by crashes, so it might be a good idea to use them too along with your lights if it's raining hard.

1. Make yourself visible.

Being seen is always the most important thing when riding your ebike during bad weather conditions. If dark clouds are looming over you, there's no better way to be visible than using lights. There are lots of different types available, with some being more powerful than others. However, they all make you stand out even in foggy or misty weather, which makes them perfect for rainy days.

3. Beware of puddles, ditches, and manholes.

When it rains heavily, there are dozens of places on the road that will make you lose balance if you don't pay attention to them. Puddles are obvious, but what about ditches or manholes hidden in the asphalt? Steer clear from all of these to keep yourself safe.

Wrapping up

Riding your ebike in the rain can be treacherous, but with these 7 tips in mind, you'll find that it's not as dangerous as it may seem at first. Just keep yourself visible and slow down if needed and you should be just fine. Happy riding!
