We had plans for a longer ride in the Kuhankuono national park in November. Everyone fully expected the weather conditions to be wet and miserable, but just a few days before the ride was to take place the temperature dropped and we even got some snow. Instead of a wet fall ride we had a nice dry (with some exceptions) winter ride. The morning temperature was -11°C and it rose to about -7°C during the day. It felt a bit chilly after the warm fall, but in practice this temperature does not yet affect cycling very much. Four participants meant that we were able to ride fairly fast, taking into account the circumstances.
