I'm probably the only guy on these Forums that doesn't ride in inclement weather.
I don't mind the cold so much and do short rides then (well, not COLD), but I'm opposed to me and any of my bike getting wet and dirty. I'll throw safety in as an issue also...but I just want to keep my bikes clean, lol!
my buddy has a 38 Schwinn that was his only transportation for a while. his crank was loose so he asked me to fix it, I have never seen so much dirt and junk in a set of bearings. took it apart and cleaned everything up and put it back together for him. I'm sure his hubs are equally a mess, but I didn't mention that since I don't really feel like fixing that.
bikes don't like a lot of wet weather riding. neither do I
Here's one from yesterday's ride after we had the rare occurrence of some overnight rain.

And the ultra rare occurrence of a full double arch rainbow.
I can't even remember the last time I saw one of those.
Maybe when I was backpacking in the Sierras.

It was so big, that there was no way to get a picture of the whole span from where I was.
Sometimes you forget just how beautiful Mother Nature is.
It's nice to be reminded every once in awhile.
