To Ride Or Not To Ride
Happy New Year! I've been itching to go on a ride for a few weeks now, and today seemed like as good a day as any. I mean it was only minus 8 degrees so why not, eh? So after one decides to go for a winter ride in Canada you must think about the gear you'll need. Let's see, I will require a tank top, undershirt, jersey, armwarmers, long sleeve jersey, wind resistant jacket, shorts, knee warmers, tights,wool socks - make that 2 pairs of wool socks, waterproof socks, winter cycling shoes, winter gloves, neck warmer, balaclava, helmet and glasses. I weighed this stuff and it totaled 8lbs! Was it worth it?- of course it was.
