    My stomach gets cold after cold weather rides, the skin can get ice cold and numb. I think its due to blood flow being diverted from digestive processes during exercise, and its that flow that keeps...

    The only rides that don't start from home are mountain bike trail rides since none of the trails are close (one 20km and the other 80km away). Now and then I ride to the one 20 km away (gravel roads...

    When given the opportunity, motorists will take the racing line to increase the speed at which they can turn. All the time I seem drivers cutting across the wrong lane when making a left.

    I don't carry one anymore. A patch kit should be good enough for summer and in winter I wouldn't even bother trying to fix a flat.

    Self driving cars will probably be the safest vehicles on the road. They will be only vehicles in 100% compliance with traffic regulations. The roof mounted sensors will have a better view of...

    The snow we get here gets packed into a form nearly as slick as ice. When I first got my fat bike I had to give up commuting on it until I got studs for it. Dillinger studded tires just came out...

    I think what was missing from my cold weather clothing selection was just snow. The extra exertion from snow on the ground generates more heat, plus going slower reduces overall wind speed. Just...

    My lips usually tell me right away if I'm dehydrated. In addition to trying to stay hydrated I use compression shorts after a ride or before bed if my quads are feeling sore. The pair I have don't...

    In very loose snow, the kind that hasn't been packed and doesn't bind to itself I'll run 3-4 psi on my Moonlander. When I had 3.8" tires on a narrower rim that would be 4-5 psi for the same sort of...

    Tried my new respirator out today. I took the bottom valve out, but left the top ones in place. It is a little wider near the top of the nose than my old one so the goggles don't fit very well. ...

    Seeing as OP is in Ontario there should be a few options relatively close. Ordering from the US for people in Canada is generally not ideal due to courier brokerage fees.

    Maybe try phoning shops in other cities near you. If you are confident in sizing I'm sure many shops would mail them to you. If they aren't too far away you could do a road trip to try some on.

    D-cell batteries are expensive and don't have enough juice. I tried a pair and I think they are mostly a gimmick since they were just really really thick socks, too thick to use in any of my boots...

    A headwind is made much worse if there is blowing snow mixed in. The snow melting as it hits your face quickly saps heat.

    I get a lot fogging with my OTG goggles (of my glasses, not the goggles)...

    Yup the housing loop going into the derailleur has always been the cause of a sticky derailleur for me. I've had the shifting get sloppy right around freezing. The most thorough way to clean it is...

    Clothing for around -12C just hasn't been coming together for me yet this season. I'm wearing what I'd normally wear in past years, but its just not keeping me warm. Might just be the wind, I'll...

    A freehub on a different bike started getting clunky at -3C the other day, and even more at -12C. So I removed the hub and gave it a good cleaning and it was fine yesterday.
