Cold weather riding

Need to start this topic up again, because the temperatures aren’t getting warmer, and I’m sure I’m not the only one looking for new ways to stay warm while riding this winter.

GREAT day for ride!

But we really pay for it in the summer when the humidity is so high you swim through the air.

I’m a weather wimp!  I put my bike back on the trainer several days ago.  Had to have a moment of silence as I wheeled it back into the house.  Very depressing!
