    I will be at Pedal, 100%. Not 100% about pedaling there.

    Cue ball busting in 3... 2... 1...
    The correct number of bikes one should own is N+1, where N is the number of bikes currently owned.

    I just rode (9:30am) 2 flat miles to work at Lucky Bikes Re-Cyclery and all was good except my fingers! I had liner gloves paired with Pearl Izumi's coldest rated windproof insulated gloves. Not sure what else to do for the hands

    This is the issue I'm having. Pogies are the next step. Maybe santa will bring, or I'll win some in the raffle.

    Try ice climbing or ski gloves. I use Black Diamond guide gloves.

    Fatbike friends, bring bungee cords if you think you might want a bailout ride home. I'll be there with 4 wheels.

    FWIW I have been using the Bar Mitt pogies for the last couple of years which help but not enough for me (even when combined with chem warmers). I am going to upgrade to more expedition level pogies... YMMV

    There are very few notable threads on MTBR's front range forum. And this is one of them

    I never did give thanks to lubes and mge for the pogies info. I ended up with Bar Mitts and was fine with my regular full finger gloves. On one ride around 10F with 661 Storm gloves it was too much. My gloves were sweat soaked. In the future I plan to ride with regular full finger and keep the Storms or regular gloves in the 'bak for any off-the-bike needs.
