Continuing the Christmas tradition I went out for a ride Christmas Day. It was exceptionally cold today and I wore ski gloves with the bar mitts, a thermal hat, and started riding with the socks on the middle setting. By the time I got to town I was sweating but then it cooled off later when the sun went away and my gear choice was spot on!
With mercury in single digits the past two nights and the daily highs not going above 20 degrees as you can imagine everything was frozen. As I passed people braving the cold I shouted Merry Christmas!
