About the cold. Living in NH where it was -3 and a windchill of -25 this morning, I know about how to stay warm. The crucial thing is to move the sweat away from your body. Go to Old Navy and look in the men's athletic section. They sell 100% synthetic t-shirts in long and short sleaves for between $10-$20. They even come in bright safety minded vivid colors! When I rode last Friday it was 45 when I started and 39 when I came home. I wore 3 shirts (one short sleave) and a nylon vest (bright orange and I even had my blinky lights on). Only the tips of my toes were cold--- and only at the end of the ride. Ditch the cotton even in the warm weather. You won't regret it.

Dreaming about riding in NH's summertime!
