Yes, it’s been cold lately. I’m still riding however and mostly it’s as awesome as it ever is. Yesterday however it was windy as well, making the ride home feel colder than I thought it should be. Normally I suffer a bit on the way to work. I get to work before the Sun is up most of the time, so my fingers are often a bit frozen by the time I finish my 27 mile commute. The ride home usually makes up for this, with the sun shining and it of course being much warmer, I enjoy the trip home even when I don’t take the long way.
Yesterday… oh how unpleasant. It did not seem that much cooler initially but I was cold the whole way home. There was a head wind of 10 to 15 mph, but I’m not sure if was that or the fact that I was very hungry as well. Whatever it was I got home questioning my sanity of why I ride in the winter.
I got up this morning and back on the bike riding to work, proving that I am crazy.
