Rain poncho for bicyclists

A rain poncho for bicyclists works as rain gear for wheelchair users.

Description
Rain poncho in bag.

Authors comments
The rain poncho protects against rain, snow, wind, and cold. It also protects any items wheelchair users may have on their lap, such as a mobile phone. Conny always has it with him whenever he goes out. Conny has not tested operating a power-driven wheelchair with chin control with the poncho on, but he thinks it should work.
