I can't feel my toes!
Cold ... brrrrr
Last night's ride to Chez Grace was good - I was rugged up for the milder than expected ride, just knicks, thermal and a windjacket and light beanie under the helmet and some 'batgloves' (Cannondale ones, quite good). My good battery for the AyUps lights, and felt quite comfortable despite the generally downhill nature of the ride in to town.
But this morning ... cold and foggy at 9:30am. Up the hill, I elected to take it very easy and ride up the Eastern Freeway trail rather than the road, which compounded the coldness, it's always colder away from builtup areas. I'm currently regretting not having taken at least toe covers, I lost feeling in my toes by about Doncaster Rd. Leg warmers might have been a good idea too ... C'est la Vie ...
I'm rugged up now in a 'Hugh Hef' and ugg boots (pure foot luxury!) - I'm afraid to get in to the shower though, the sharp pain of hot water on frozen feet is pretty special, and I want to warm up a bit before I get in. Rumour has it it was about 4 degrees in town this morning, and I'd believe it.
