Nice Weather, Except For...

Dear Abby,

I'm looking out my window this morning, and I see a sunny start to the day with no wind. Birds are flying about, and squirrels are scampering from tree to tree.

The only problem? It's only 17 degrees!! (that's -8 to our metric friends)

I just don't have the proper clothing to tackle that kind of cold (it's tough to find for one who is not lean and fit). I also don't have the dedication to the sport.

What should I do?


Wishing for the 40s in Indiana

Bundle up ansd go for a ride!

Walmart has some nice windproofs you can wear over a set od shorts and sweats, and Underarmor, Fleece and shell are cheap enough as well! We're riding out to the Skywatch Tower this afternoon. Watch for the pics later!

Use waterproofs as a wind and vapour barrier, wear two pairs of socks, and wear a plastic grocery bag between the layers of socks.

-8C is the point where I switch from wearing kneewarmers under my rainpants to wearing cycling pants under my rainpants. Once you get used to it it's not so bad :-)
