The end of warmth

Today was absolutely beautiful.  Far above normal temperatures, but this morning was really cold.  Two fellow co-workers both commented on how they forgot to wear gloves on their ride in and were cold and uncomfortable most of the way.  A few cool weather tips.

  • Cover the head - a crapload of heat (and intelligence) is lost through the head. 
  • Wear Gloves - it's tough to hang on to the handlebars when you can't feel your fingers
  • Wool not Cotton - if you sweat, cotton stays wet and cold, wool doesn't
  • Wind breaker - you may be warm standing still, but the wind chill decreases once you start riding.
  • Long underwears - usually the legs stay warmest, but for the real cold days, cover them up
