The People's Cycling Poncho 2.0 - She Rides Her Bike Review

The People's Cycling Poncho 2.0 - She Rides Her Bike Review

June 08, 2018

A few months ago The People’s Poncho reached out to me and asked if I’d give their Poncho 2.0 a whirl. You know, in everyday circumstances. Knowing that I was committed to commuting this season, I happily obliged. The worst that could happen is that I learn rain poncho’s aren’t for me, right?

Fast forward thru the rainy season, and let me tell you, this magnificent yellow waterproof poncho is the number one thing I ALWAYS have with me now. In fact, I even locked myself out of the house recently, but at least I had my rain poncho.

So here’s the thing. In terms of ponchos, my only previous experience with them were the clear garbage bag-like ones my dad would give us when we went to concerts. I’m pretty sure they actually were just garbage bags that he cut holes in, but I digress. My point is, I honestly didn’t have that high of expectations. But true to my word, I gave it a shot and was immediately blown away.

First try with it I rode of to my sister’s house, knowing it wasn’t far, just in case it was an epic fail. Wearing jeans, a rain jacket, and basic sneakers, I was amazed that I stayed dry. Even my feet! This Rain Poncho fits perfectly over the handlebars, creating a tent over the entire front end. Again, this was crucial, considering I was wearing jeans.

After that initial day, this became a staple. It comes in a handy little bag, so it’s easy to store within the back of my Burley trailer or in a pannier. And much to my surprise, it’s actually easy to get back into said pouch without having to learn the art of origami. How often does that happen?!

Fathers Day weekend was our yearly trip to a classic and popular cycle rally called L'Eroica Britannia.

Set in the rolling Derbyshire hills amid the green fields rises each year a celebration of all the beautiful bikes predating 1987, this was the year that steel frame bikes gave way to lighter and faster models.
