MSF in the rain?

I am booked for the Awesome Cycles ERC tomorrow (Wed 01/25) to get rid of a ticket. The web site says 'rain or shine'. Seeing as it is 100% chance of heavy thunderstorms, up to 3" rain, do you think they will still have us out there? I have the gear but it is looking like one looong day.

They're not kidding about rain or shine. My BRC class with Awesome was in August and the skies opened just before the riding test, but we just continued on with it.

My wife did it in the rain, during winter.

If its flooding or lightning storming they will cancel.

I only stop my class for lightning but not just rain. A two piece rain suit works best and a poncho is very dangerous to wear on a bike.

I did my class in 40 degree weather...was raining hard but no thunderstorm. Not a fun situation ... I didn't have rain gear and was soaking wet...leather jacket got heavy real quick and I caught a cold. Had to wake up early the next morning for the 2nd day...half the class dropped after the first day of riding.

Get rain gear and bring extra socks/pants/underwear...everything lol

we rode in rain when i took it at awesome cycles. if it is pouring cats and dogs, i think they'll just rearrange the riding and classroom portion.
