Cycling through Placer County

It can be an interesting time of year to ride, weather-wise. 

Wind breakers, long pants and wool socks can give way to shorts and short-sleeve jerseys by the time a ride is done. 

It’s a cliché but true: wear layers.

Weather apps will give you, with some accuracy, an hour-by-hour view of the chance of rain.  A $20 investment in an emergency rain jacket that can be rolled up into a pocket might pay dividends before the season is over.
