-4.5

30 Nov 2008 at 12:02 Filed Under:

Wow did the mercury drop last night. When I set off at 7:50 it was 4.5 below with ice everywhere, not enough to slow cars down, though, apparently they hover above the ground and have no need to have reliable contact with the earth... clearly I missed when these new types of vehicles arrived.

Luckly the cold was dry, it was better than yesterday so speeds were up, routes were almost completely rideable and it was a much more pleasant experience than yesterday, moreso when the temps creeped towards zero. My hands and feet weren't cold at all, pointing toward a perfect clothing system, (for information it was : thermal t-shirt, dry fit long sleeved top with arm warmers over the top, another dry fit top with a thermal LS jersey as the outer layer,shorts were thermal 3/4s under Fox 3/4 DH shorts, Sealzkinz Merino socks in NW Celcius boots (which are good in the dry, but terrible in the wet).

30 miles on the nose, hopefully the temps will go up again, not least because when it's that cold my crappy double glazing condenses like crazy.
