Winter Cycling Gear
Man it was cold this evening! I was forced (literally forced) to wear some extra, technical garments to keep warm:
- A “fleece” under my jacket. This is a bit like a jumper, but made of some sort of man-made fibre. The wonders of modern technology.
- A hat AND a scarf
- Gloves. These were my Aldi specials, but proved not to be up to the job on the way home. Fortunately I’d brought reinforcements in the shape of my Luke-I-Am-Your-Father skiing gloves. Hmmmm - toasty!
One more reason to wear padded (a.k.a. insulated) cycling shorts? Or should I just apply the menthol chamois cream for that glowing undercarriage feeling?
