Chicks did about 28 miles today, started out at 39 degrees and rose to 52 degrees. This is not really cold weather but it does take some good gear to survive a ride in these temps.
We all had long tights, thick socks and some type of windstopper or good jacket. A nice headband that covers your ears is necessary as well.
Re-visit the blog page where I discuss winter clothing.
I do plan on TRYING to run a ride every Saturday. As long as it is not snowing and not below 32 degrees, I will try to run a ride. Biking through the winter makes a HUGE difference on your riding next spring and summer.
Hanging the bike up for the winter is just NOT necessary. You miss a good amount of riding and it can be equally fun.
