  1. In the winter I always dress for the weather and the activity and
    If : the roads are dry, with a minimum of sand and/or salt….then I just deal with the cold weather ( thermal underwear, gloves, balaclava and full-face helmet) and keep right on riding in comfort .Why not ?
    Many others “deal” with winter on the ski slopes……but rarely in their tank tops and shorts.

    • Exactly. Why not?
      Good point about the tank tops and shorts on the ski slopes!

      Thanks Kevin. Safe travels.
