Winter ride

I went outdoors on a 23 mile ride today. Temperature was 34 and wind chill 25. The accompanying picture shows the amazing contrast with riding and the amount of snow still on the ground. To ride, I have to stick the bike in the car and leave my subdivision before so I can find dry, bare pavement. Then I'm on my way! So far, I have ridden almost 100 miles outside this winter. The picture on this post shows my typical winter riding gear. I can ride very comfortably with this gear down to 30 degrees. On colder days I add a fleece hood, shoe covers and very warm leather mittens. I really look forward to the day when I can again go out on a ride with just a jersey and shorts on.
