We’ve featured our fair share of umbrellas and bicycle accessories so it only makes sense that eventually the two things would crossover. In fact, I’m sort of having a “Why didn’t I think of that?” moment with this one. (Well technically, I did, but the duct tape didn’t hold.) You see, rain is my number 2 excuse for not biking more often—right after laziness. But the Uberhood removes at least one of my excuses. It mounts to your bike and can be opened and closed while you’re riding, keeping you dry or protected from the sun. Now the only other flimsy excuse I can come up with is an irrational fear of being impaled on an umbrella while bicycling.
