It was frigid to be on a bike today to say, to say the least. That's a screen shot (below) of my computer as I left the house this morning (3F/-16C)...it "warmed up" to about 16F/-8C later in the day. In a couple days the temps are supposed to rise to nearly 40F/4C...with the crazy weather these days it's often a guessing game as to how to dress before hopping on the bike. And it's interesting how many people ask if I'm not cold on the bike in this weather...the answer is always a quick no. That said, I will say that my fingers get cold (I need a new set of gloves). But dressed appropriately--in this weather I also cover my mouth and nose with a scarf, lest I breath in the frigid air too quickly--I actually find myself sweating, not freezing. I think it would be far more uncomfortable to be out scraping a windshield on a car than hopping on a bike and riding. That said--and I know other all-weather cyclists will agree with this--there is really nothing like pedaling down a deserted city street at night (it's difficult to coast in the snow) and hearing your own breath and the sound of your tires crunching the snow beneath you.
