It was snowing out so I went for a bike ride. People in cars kept staring at me like I was nuts. I don't get it...
the upside if a random paintball war breaks out at the next right light, you're ready.
Or if your street suddenly turns into a snowboard course without warning, you're good to go
Maybe your helmet wasn't on straight?

I demanded a new ID badge one morning when I rode to work with balaclava, lobsters, helmet cover and shoe covers on. The badge lady just laughed.
I think it's the goggles...
So in a nutshell: WTF are you doing outside when it's snowing?!
Silly boy! Snowshoes are for snow! That being said I am soooooo jealous! I want some white stuff to play in!
Perhaps there was a bank robbery nearby, and having heard the news on their car radios, the drivers thought you could perhaps be the perp?People keep looking at me weird, what am I doing wrong?

Just a thought. LOL
they will get used to you
cycling is like baseball ~ it doesn't take much to make it interesting
I thought your socks weren't matching, but then I noticed the picture.
I looked at the googles this morning, but stayed with the glasses. But it didn't start snowing here till the end of my ride.

They're just jealous because they're paying $$$ for a gallon of gas.
Learn to enjoy the incredulousness of drivers. This is nothing compared to the attitude co-workers give to bike commuters who arrive at work on their bikes when there's a little bit of rain, let along snow or ice. "You rode in that?"
Their the one's that don't get it....hammer on my friend...
I couldn't wear the goggles I sweat so much they would be fogged up in about 30 seconds. I have on the other hand had an eye freeze shut once.
Best thing about cycling is when I'm at work I'm thinking of cycling, when I'm cycling I'm thinking about cycling.

Early helplessness is the price we pay for later brilliance. Or, at least our later capacity for non-idiocy

Goggles rarely fog, and if they do I just turn my head for a second and the airflow defogs it. You will NOT be able to see traffic behind you by turning your head though, the goggles block too much. I had to buy a mirror.
Clava is nice and warm but holds moisture. Haven't noticed it on the ride, but after it's soaking wet. I forgot to hang it up to dry overnight and the next morning it was still soaking wet. Pearl Izumi's tend to shed moisture better, but they are less insulating. As long as it's not causing a problem while riding I don't mind. My breathing is restricted with the mouthpiece up, but not terribly so. I accept that as a limitation of winter cycling. Blowing my nose with the nose cover up will end in a gross disaster.
I keep a set of swim goggles in my bag for such conditions or rain. Dad had a saying, "A wierd look means they saw you"...
Could be worse. You could be making small children scream and cry. That's what happens when they see me.
