Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

Hands: warm. Feet: toasty. Harbles:

Hands: warm. Feet: toasty. Harbles:

Frozen and gone. Went for a fast 20 miler in the dark. Temperature was about 50-55, so arm warmers and booties were in order. Unfortunately, my heavy shorts are in need of washing, so, I manned up and went with some thin shorts. Well, long story short, my harbles are I are no longer on speaking terms....Maybe they'll warm back up to me in the shower....

So how do you deal with keeping your harbles comfy?

Well, I've never heard the term harbles but I'm pretty sure I wouldn't want a rubber band anywhere near mine. And 50-55 degrees? Must be the wind chill.

Its not harbles, it's yarbles. As in:

"Come and get one in the yarbles, that is if you have any yarbles."

Well,that at my house (which out of the valley). I'll bet it was closer to 40 in the valley, which was where I did the majority of my ride.
