Checking in from the Eugene area here - not Eugene proper, but the working-class side of the freeway. If you see an uptight-looking middle-aged doughball huffing and wheezing on an old white Trek 7000, try not to laugh until I'm out of earshot.

San Juan Islands. No matter what you do, you have to take a ferry/boat or fly in on a float plane

Moving to the Portland area in three weeks. I'll be in temp housing for a bit, have to decide where to live. Job is outside Fairview; I'm looking for a bikeable commute.

(Portland here)
So I didn't want to start a new thread, ill ask this question here and hopefully get answered in this section.

When its 37' outside and you ride do you wear a buff of any kind? (a.k.a fishing buff)

I rode a few times this past week and its hard for me to suck in that cold 37 degree air outside. Thanks for the replies if any.

Like a neck warmer that you can pull over your nose to prevent cold air hitting your face.

nothing fancy just material that helps the wind in your face.

Ah. Thanks for the link. So it's sort of a stretchy dicky.

[hold for laughter]

Personally, that's a very hard "no", as I try real hard to avoid looking like I just robbed a liquor store and set fire to an old folks' home. Those skull/clown/punisher graphics absolutely kill the deal. I am probably being crabby - it's early yet - but I would rather breathe cold air than run around in a Komedy Kriminals Klub halloween mask.

Back when I used to ride motorcycles regularly, I used a great thick Pendleton wool scarf, and it worked really well right down into the teens in dry air. Might be too heavy and bulky for bicycling, though.

If those offer those buffs in a more cheerful solid color that didn't give off the Urban X-Treeeeme Sports Thug™ vibe, it'd probably do the job just fine.

Spokane, standing by.

I actually rode outside yesterday. Some sort of alternate universe or something!

I also rode....

I also rode yesterday (01/28/18) early in the morning. It was dark however due to the very bright moon in the sky I could see these large belowing clouds in the sky. The clouds and sky were blue'ish in color, it was very quiet, and beautiful.

Here, in what is called "downtown" Veneta, Oregon,
Where, most of the time, if you are not doing something, nothing is happening.
