tomorrow...wear thermal underwear...
I was out and about near Brazos Bend park today, about 110 miles or so averaging 50-70 mph. But, I forgot my thermal underwear, when I got back I realized how cold my legs, especially my thighs were. It took me a while to warm up. I guess it was less than sixty F, but humid, and I rode non-stop the whole time. Yeah, cold and it was affecting my focus a bit at the end.
When we raced Ski-Doo Blizzards at 10,000 feet, with air temperatures at zero F, and wind chills of maybe -35 F, we would layer up. A secret, learned from the professional racers: pantyhose. They made a huge difference under thermal underwear, then jeans, then our one piece suits. Any exposed flesh would be prone to frostbite, and that is some nasty stuff. I still have a couple scars on my throat area from not enough wind protection. Eyes had to be very carefully shielded: I preferred large goggles under a one piece helmet with an additional clear face shield.
