    Bicycle Umbrella 

    They call it a bike umbrella, but it’s more like a removable windshield. Either way, it looks like a great cycling accessory.

    Plenty of us are fair weather cyclists, but when the rain starts falling, many people shy away from commuting by bike (if they have another alternative transport, such as a car). And although the full-body experience of riding a bike can be invigorating when riding for fun, it’s a challenge to continue to cycle to work or school or shopping when the weather threatens to soak us, especially if you don’t own proper rain gear.

    However, one UK company is taking aim at this issue with its “Bicycle Umbrella” that promises to keep riders (mostly) dry while on the bike, without having to commit to something like an enclosed recumbent bike, and to do so at a relatively small price.
