50F is my magic number. Anything below that and I wear my first gear riding suit/damn near snow suit. It's good down to 32F. Anything below that and I find other things to do.
Way to go P V, and I'll bet those nice distractions helped some. Odometer's not running backwards but it's trying to. And I like your calcs , a balmy 58's mighty good but I challenge it too - once in a while too much.but then I just did a november run to Zion with every mornin temps hoverin rite at 40f. even did some 35f work at the Gran Kanyon north rim... my odometer mus be runnin backward? poncho
absolutely! I try to ride every month of the year, depending on the amount of ice at the end of the driveway.part of my criteria is how long it's been since i've ridden and cloudy vs. Sunny. If it's sunny and in the upper 30's, i'll give it a shot. May only go 30 or 40 miles, but riding is good "therapy" for me!
