Our first "real" snowfall of the year has arrived, not counting the couple centimetres we got two weeks ago. Only -6 Celsius, but -16 with the wind chill, and snow still coming down. Good thing I put the studs on last night! Even with them the bridges and main roads were dicey.
On the pathway I was surprised how many other bikes I saw. My commute is in the opposite direction to the main traffic, and I lost count after 20+ bikes in the first kilometre.
I overdressed like crazy, and had to stop three times - once to downgrade mitts, once to strip off a layer, and once to take a photo . My cell phone camera wasn't focusing in the cold/dark though, so here's a very blurry picture:
Also: I found some polar fleece socks at the back of my closet, and managed to squeeze them in to my (laces loosened) regular bike shoes. Toes weren't cold at all, even though the ride took me an hour!
