During my ride to work this morning it was 7 degrees Fahrenheit, with a windchill of -7. I could really use some goggles; for a while, I thought my glasses were going to freeze to my face, especially when I crested a hill and was greeted with a blast of extremely cold air. Otherwise, I was fairly comfortable, although I could have used another layer on my legs.
In cold weather, my bicycle gets some condensation when I bring it in the building. When it’s really cold, like today, water condenses on the bike and immediately freezes. All from being out in the cold for about 15 minutes. Granted, this is nothing compared to what some Minnesota commuters are going through, but for here in southern Indiana, this is extremely cold.
