I have one that I read in our school library over and over and over when I was a kid. It was a book of ghost stories (maybe 15-20 short stories), and one of them involved a boy riding to trumpet lessons or violin lessons or something on a bicycle in the rain. I think the cover of the book actually had a drawing of a boy on a bicycle.

Maybe Thornton Burgess stories. One of his characters was Sammy Jay.
Here is the text of one of his books, and here are some others.
