It sucked. The rain slashed into me just after I got around the lake. I not only had to turn off the battery but take shelter in bushes from the onslaught.I rode back mostly on no battery. Once the trike dried a bit I risked brief spurts when legs were failing.No one writes songs about riders in storms, well electric-assist trike riders, because there's nothing majestic about it. You're wet, there's wind and you can't use the battery.The chain also came off at one point. Had I not got it back on I'd likely still be pushing it home.
