How to protect your face when riding on a rainy day?

I am working on an innovation project for my Managing Users' Innovation course. We are trying to find innovative solutions to our concerning problem about bicycles that is when itís raining, your face is not protected. How can you keep your face dry without obstructing your vision and therefore your safety? Do you have any suggestions? Thank you very much for your support. Welcome to contact me: [email protected].

You might try sitting backwards.

Seriously, the best thing I've found is a really good helmet with a tight fitting face screen. Unfortunately you still have a few other problem areas.

I'd rather deal with a little rain than wear a full-face helmet on a bicycle. I do have a little pride, ya know.

Rain-X your shield. I dont think there is a possible way to ride without getting your vision obstructed by the rain. Or how about a visor thats pointed down at more of an angle to divert the rain away from your face. Other than that, i got nothing.

A large bandana and some sun or safety glasses. Your face will still get wet but the bandana will take the sting out of it.

A few ccs short of a full litre.
