Look Out Below
This past week's extreme temps has made riding quite challenging. My rule of 2's has proved effective for my core body including my head. My hands and feet are another story. I have researched to death how to keep my extremities warm but have found no real solution. I would have to add major bulk which would make shifting and pedaling difficult. It is deceiving as when I first go out I feel comfortable. One hour into the ride and a fast downhill and my fingers and toes are complaining. Another hour and they are screaming. It takes a lot of preparation to ride below freezing, but, for fun and safety I must limit my time to 90 minutes.
