So I went for a ride today it was -14C, I came across this large flood plain, normally this area is dry but the river has overflowed and everything was ice. For the last few days we've had temps of around -25C.
So I went on riding and everything was going fine until all of the sudden my front wheel went through the ice , I went in almost waist deep into the water. I got out and my pants were just soaked and my boots were filled with water my gloves got soaked also. I had some spare clothing but it was just too cold to strip and change. I was 5 km from my home the temp was -14C. So I just got on my bike and peddalled as hard and as fast as I could , I knew that the only way to avoid getting hyporthemic and getting frost bite was to move very fast. I got home without any problem. Wheww... thank god I was very lucky.
