Welcoming New Staff! 🍂
by Peter Burns
Each fall I commit to doing recreational rides during the winter months. Then it gets really cold and I find myself slacking off. My feet and hands get cold easily. I have electric mittens and warm boots, but after half an hour, when it is below 20 degrees my extremities get cold. This limits my range. When the temperature is in the single digits, getting ready for a ride takes almost half an hour! If I am taking a short ride for fun, it almost doesn't seem worth the effort.

Dressing for the Weather
Dress for the weather as it is rather than the weather you hope for. Sunny spring mornings can be especially deceptive. If it is in the 40’s with a brisk breeze blowing you are in for a chilly ride if you underdressed. Sun can quickly turn into rain or snow. Always bring along a waterproof jacket, just in case.
