Take a nap on the sofa in the breakroom till there is a break in the rain. Or pull out the rain suit and go for it.

If I'm at work and it's raining I keep working...if I'm riding out and it's raining...well I get wet until I get about 1 mile down the road and the rain stops...this is Houston afterall

there's no such thing as "stuck in the rain" unless u got a flat "in the rain". ride that machine. just take it easy, go slow, and stay on point

there has been a few times where it was raining far too hard and I left the bike and hitched a ride with a coworker to a bar.

rear brake is perfectly fine to use in the rain. in fact, i'd highly recommend using them. First you must know how to use them though.
