I have a riding buddy up here in Massachusetts who is still riding his bike in December! Yesterday he rode it in to work when it was 18 degrees! Eighteen degrees! I have to point out that he doesn't live two miles from work, he travels a full 35 miles on the back roads and the highway. Can you say "wind chill"? He does have the Gerbings heated gloves and inner soles but that's it. He did get the heated pants in the mail yesterday so I guess he's good to go down to the single numbers! :s Out of the dozen or so bikes that were parked in our parking lot at work i the summer only his sits out there alone on these bitterly cold days. All I can say is I feel like a wimp because my ride is all jacked up in the garage with the battery tender plugged in and a cover over it. I should point out that I don't notice any other bikes out there on the roads during this freezing weather so I know he is most certifiably insane!! Do any of you ride in the really cold weather and more importantly, do you enjoy it? Just wondering.
