Here in the NW I have been poured on every month of the year, sometimes far from any acceptable shelter. I bring light weight "waterproof" jersey and keep pedaling. I rarely use rain pants in the summer, but just let the legs get wet. If in the mountains, though, it can get too cold so I bring leg warmers and wear them if I'm getting too wet. Hypothermia can be an issue in the mountains any time of the year.
