After having a little warmer weather with some thawing for a few weeks, the cold weather is back. I went out for a ride in splendid weather with sunshine and a crisp -16°C (3°F) temperature.
People were enjoying the nice weather on the nearby lake.
The trails are in nice and hard shape.
There was even some (barely) rideable tracks out to the two small islands of the lake.
The Biltema pogies worked great in this temperature. With a pair of thin wool finger gloves my hands stayed comfortably warm. The cycling shoes worked as expected as well. I replaced the insole with a wool felt one and used a pair of thick wool socks as well as neoprene shoe covers. After 2.5 h my feet were still fairly warm, but this is really a little too cold for this type of shoes.
