Re: Success on 7 deg F motorized bicycle work commute!
You guys have me thinking. I have these nice four bikes sitting here in my garage and I haven't ridden one is a couple of weeks. We've been having teens and single digit temperatures and I had no desire to go out there. However, I have a set of insulated coveralls that I wear to blow snow and waterproof boots and some gloves that are two layers. They keep me warm while I'm using the snow blower, maybe, just maybe I'll bundle up in this arctic gear and take a bike ride around the neighborhood.
I'll let you know if and when. I'm going to wait for the ice to melt off the streets though. That's for sure.
Personally I hate being cold so I'm not sure what the provocation is except that I like to ride my bikes. If I don't take the chance it might be March or April before I do it again. Colorado winters can be long and brutal.
