It hadn't rained for such a long time, I had forgotten the possibility of it until my ride home tonight. I was making good time with the light traffic and then I felt a spinkle. I made the decision to not put on the raincoat because the rain seemed light. But then ten minutes from home, the rain became heavy and my electirc bike shorted out. Luckily, it didn't completely short out as I was able to do thirty kmh instead of the forty I normally do. But going at a slower speed forced me to put on the rain coat.
