We are experiencing some idyllic days in Barcelona, with a spring weather which allows us to ride our bikes during long and nice tours. But, the cyclists who really respect our city and our nature, cannot forget the importance of the rain.
The climate change is affecting our winter and as bicycle lovers, a clean and natural means of transport, we know that this spring environment, as pleasant as it might be, is a consequence of the pollution. Because of that, we are waiting for the rain with enthusiasm.
The rain is refreshing, especially in cities where we usually can find a concentration of the polluting particles and for us this is the best excuse for believing the Spanish expression: ‘against the bad weather, a happy face’ -which makes reference to the English expression: ‘if life gives you lemons make lemonade’-. We are simply attend to the meteorological news and before going out we make sure that we are using suitable shoes, and we have “made ourselves waterproof” and we follow some basic tips to pedal under the rain.
With these premises, we can pedal tirelessly and enjoy the rain in Barcelona.
