    Keeping the veges warm...noob question

    Okay I just road outside today in 40deg weather with 25mph winds. It was nice but I notice that my meat and two veges (the boys) get cold. I notice the cold when I slow down but I'd like them to be warm. I wore fleeced lined long padded bicyling tights but the veges were still chilly.

    Some others might be the noob. Took the bait, in order to find out what a vege is... I keep my top half warm with Under Armour.. Bottom.. The Nalini bibs are thermo lined. I'm usually ok with that. IF not, I have some thermal underwear, front paneled.. They work really well. But, normally , Nalini does the trick.. Know what you mean.. The cold seems to channel right up the crotch, without a little protection.. Only time, I'll risk chafing by not going commando. When , it's cold outside. .. Biggest problem. the Feet. Thick socks. The feet are still freezing.

    Veggies? Meat? Sounds like you need a recipe. Add boiling water, salt, pepper... simmer for 1 hour.

    If yer johnson gets cold it is an indication that you don't have enough blood flow down there. Best start getting that lil feller some exercise before you end up hooked on Viagra at a very young age.

    Craft windblocker shorts. 25.00 from various online stores. Look around, you may luck into a close out. Try sierratradingpost, campmor, performance, nashbar...all the usual suspects. Icebike.com may have some links.

    I actually have Craft Pro Zeros WS underpants. I haven't pulled them out yet. I didn't think it was cold enough for those. My fleece lined cycling tights are perfect for right now except of course for the cold boys.....but that usually happens only when I stop cycling because that is when I notice it.

    I'm tellin ya, you best get them boys working out as regular as you do to increase their blood flow capacity, otherwise you might become a eunuch.
