I have enough equipment to bike in -2C fine, it's plenty warm.
The problem is my kitchen is too cold, my bathroom is too cold, I'm hiding under a kotatsu, I mean hell I don't eat. I eat breakfast at work, I don't pack a lunch, when I get home I'm hungry and I don't go in the kitchen to cook because it's way too cold in there to prepare food for cooking. I actually wear the wool biking gear in my apartment o_O
No breakfast means no biking, not to mention I can't wake up in the morning because I'm eating two small meals a day now. :twitch:
Cold poisoning overrules starvation. So now I don't bike commute, primarily because I sleep a lot from not eating. f*#* Oh well, at least I can annoy the wrong-way riders by honking my horn at them; I need something louder than a bike bell on my bike.
Car sucks. I mean it's fun but I'd rather be driving a car on a race track. For the open road I want an ebike or a motorcycle.. or both. I shouldn't have to take this much of a visibility penalty just because I don't feel like pedaling for 45 minutes on an empty stomach through the biting cold
