I did not want to go out in this. Temps descending like a tour cyclist with a stage to win and nothing to lose, winds unabatedly screaming. I packed on all the layers needed for a below zero ride, while giving a pep talk to the Beast.
Goggles in place and no layer leaks letting fridged farenheit find any access. Sun was out, but it was just pretending.
In these temps, I wear those tights (Pearl Izumi) with the heavy wind stopper panels in front. The back of the tights are pretty basic so, when you have a significant tail wind....
Once out I felt good, everything stayed protected. I even needed to open the vents in my ski helmet. That thing is worth its weight in gold.
As usual when I don't want to go out I was glad I did. 20/12.8
