Went for a short ride.

And I bundled up! Made it over to the Playground and rode around a bit. Tried some other layering out.

I had my soft shell jacket with a long sleeve Ibex wool shirt and my Spokejunkie wool ss jersey.

On the bottom half was my padded shorts and some old windfront tights I found that I still had.

The feet had a summer weight wool Darn Tough sock, my Pearl Izumi shoes and a set of toe covers.

The head had a synthetic balaclava, or as I like to say baklava, and my OR windproof hat. Oh, and a helmet, of course! If anyone has a good face covering idea, let me know.

I put on some old Lake windproof gloves to round out the outfit.

Once again, the camera phone quality!

Temperature had to be around 25 degrees?

  1. Face covering……for 25 degrees? Are you kidding me?

  2. I know. I’m so sad! Four years of living here must have started the blood thinning!

    Actually, once I got out there, it wasn’t as bad. I pulled it down off my face most of the time. But, i was paranoid of my sinuses. Aren’t I a weiny!?!

  3. As a reader from the sub-tropics I’ll stick up for you Marla, -4ºC does sound pretty cold.

    I rode all winter in shorts but it only got down to about 5ºC here.

  4. Thanks 🙂
