It was 15 degrees this morning with gusty wind that the web tells me meant 6F windchill. Of course I didn't check that until I got to work.
I thought about wearing a warmer jacket than normal, but my silver trenchcoat has been working pretty well, so I just layered a wool cardigan over my dress shirt to bulk up the jacket, and added an extra layer of liner gloves. I thought about adding a ear warmer band, but decided not to worry with it, and just wrapped my big red scarf around my face a couple of times. A really long scarf is a thing of beauty- short scarves just don't tuck in properly and are always coming loose.
And you know, despite the title of the post, it wasn't too bad. Was kind of annoying because I got passed too close a couple of times. My toes were kind of chilly, and I'm going to wear wool socks home. My fingers were pretty cold though- I'm going to have to break out the ski gloves. I actually think that the liners were counterproductive, because they just compressed the insulation.
As my other biking co-worker said- I was definitely warmer than the pedestrians!
Sun's out, nice day for a ride!
