Cold weather and the prepared few

©Barry Sandland/TIMB – Surviving cold weather riding is about being dressed well.

“Yeah, this is cold.”

Notes: Actually, what he said was, “Yff. Cait brieen phrod” – tough to understand voices that are wrapped up against the cold. This is a demonstration of the Norwegian saying, “There is no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothes”. We poor souls in western Europe have been struggling through a very cold spell. Some days, it is colder here than in Canada (and it is cold there). But there are cyclists out and about each and every day. All dressed for the weather. Some better than others. The cold will break next week and we shall get some sort of relent. Dress well for the cold and get back on the bike.
