Took a jaunt around the township last night. I’m at a point now where if I don’t ride every other day, I feel unsettled. At 33F I put on a pair of thermal tights under the wind pants, wore a lightly quilted nylon jacket, and pulled out a nylon balaclava. Grinding up a steady hill I felt that I was pretty warm and had to open up my collar, but once I got into a steady cruise it was just right. Felt like I could have kept on going but I had to get home.
After routing the wiring for the light last week, I decided it would be a good idea to carry 4 or 5 zip ties in the Pendel. You never know what they might come in handy for and they hardly take up any room.
