I survived the coldest night of our mostly mild winter. I got out of work just before midnight for the short ride home. The thermometer on a bank said 7 degrees F. I was keeping warm so I took a few laps around the center city area for about a 30 minute ride. When I got home, my hands were a little cold, as was my face, but there was a light sweat on my bottom layer of clothing. And I had another layer of stuff in my backpack that I could have used if it was colder, or if I wanted to ride longer. It felt good to know that I have the right gear for the more extreme conditions in my area. I got a lot of sympathy from coworkers, so I almost didn't tell hem how comfortable I really was.
