Cold...

I've got to admit that even though I'm fairly well dressed for the weather... It was cold again today.

Yes, I rode my bike in. Yes, there was ice in spots (from gutters and overspray from sprinklers into the roadway).

How cold? At least 32 degrees. I suspect it was in the high 20's at points - after 5 minutes inside, the thermometer on my bike finally read 32.

Tonight I hope to go see my friends at Action Sports to see if they have any better hand and foot covering than what I have. My fingers got cold and then thawed out, but if I had a flat or other problem while they were that cold, it would have been extremely difficult to deal with. Better to have warmer hands and the safety margin they provide, for sure.

Ride safe, everyone...
