So its pretty damn cold. When its this cold will you guys suck it up and ride outside? Or stay cozzy indoors and work the trainer?
than work in it....Which is what I did today. I look like to StayPuff Marshmellow man in all that garb, but It was 16 degrees with wind this morning. It did warm up to 30 or so, I'm not sad about that either.
wind Chill is the hardest thing to deal with. I actually wear a jogging windproof suit under my work bibs. It's like wearing a plastic bag, but as long as I pace myself, I don't sweat too much. It's the moisture that makes you cold the most.
Feet sweat 4 to 6 oz of moisture, which with the wind chill and pressure of pedalling, really get to me at 1 1/2 hours of riding. I may have solved the problem with putting cornstarch powder into my shoes and (get this) putting a bit of warm weather Greyhound juice on the bottom of my toes. (Greyhound juice is like bengay, but way better.) I will test this theory more and more as the winter work and hopefully ride days continue. Hope to post updates.
