Short Winter Ride
Renná and I departed our house a 7:30 am. It was a "crisp & cool" morning, of about 31 degrees. We live in the Sierra Foothiils.
We end up taking a short, meandering route, covering about 110 miles altogether through the valley & foothills. Was a balmy 42 when we returned home.
Discover that while warm for the most part, Renná needs electric socks; perhaps heated pants (electric vest was toasty). Renná also pledges to not leave home again when it's below freezing. I will get some heated gear, if we ever venture into colder weather - at freezing, I am still warm. I use Olympia Motosports gear, with Damart underwear.
Overall, Brian thought the ride was awesome! With proper gear, cold weather allows you to control your temperature. Plus, we saw only three others on bikes (one doesn't count, since he was a LEO, and "had" to be there) - giving us the added bonus of looking like "Crazy M*****F******"!
