I said, no, I'm exercising, so I'm pretty warm, except my toes. I think it may be time to switch to boots, or at least wool socks! I wasn't really thinking about it, but I was wearing lined wool pants which helped, a cashmere sweater and a light weight windproof trenchcoat and a big fluffy scarf.
Tonight it was maybe 30 with a nasty gusty wind flecked with snow flurries (the TV says it's 27 in Foxboro with a WC of 17), and when I came around the corner to the top of Beacon Hill, the wind practically stopped me in my tracks. I'm trying out a new route to avoid the hostility of Broadway, and while it's promising, the lights are not well timed, and the ball of my "down" foot got cold from being in contact with the pavement (plus sitting still gets chilly).
Fortunately I have some holiday cheer to keep me warm inside: Behold the return of Christmas lights!
I bought these battery powered LED lights last year, and just pulled them down from the attic with a lot of other Christmas decorations this weekend, Gilbert's basket is smaller, so they go around twice.
Just in one ride I've already heard a couple of comments- people seem to really love them.
They're a bit too silly for all year round, but lots of fun this time of year! Do you decorate your bike for the holidays?
