    How low will you go?

    I just walked the dog and thought it felt brisk. I checked the temperature and apparently we are without a temperature. If it were one degree colder, I would suit up for a bike around the block just to do it. At zero, meh.

    Well, since you had a wind chill factor that brought it down below zero (-9), you shoulda gone.

    I'd wear a hat at those temperatures. The coldest it's been here so far is about 5. That was at night.

    I guess it's a matter of what you're used to.

    Back when I worked as a MTB coach in Latvia, 0F would mean a regular training day.

    Now that I'm back in Denmark, I go boo-hoo when it gets much below 25F.
    The first winter back here was nice though, as I hardly felt the cold.
    For the time being, I spend a fair bit of time in southern France. They think they're about to die when it hits 32F

    Tone's, man up and stick your head in the freezer for a bit. It feels refreshing.

    On my hike yesterday it started out in the 30s. I had to blow warm air into my hands once or twice.

    I'm with Tone's. That is just straight up ridiculous. Right now it's 7:20 am, rainy and cold, and my thermometer says 68 degrees.

    0 degrees would kill me.

    Badwater: Lowest point in the Northern hemishere.

    It's also in the area of where the highest temp in history was recorded: 134F

    That's 14 degrees warmer. That calls for a bareback ride, IMO.

    We've warmed to a balmy 22. It is time to go and play outside. I'm thinking cross country skiing for today's fun.

    We are still riding here in southern Ontario and likely we will ride until spring.
    We did a ride Friday night after the snowfall of 10cm but we were dressed for it The temp was around -3 c and windchill made it feel like -11c

    We've ridden in colder temps previous winters, Singlesprocket has a thread on Passion with pics and videos of past years rides

    I grew up in Timmins northern Ontario. The average low in winter is -25 to -35c ( -11 to -30f) Thats not counting windchill

    The last time I visited Timmins in the winter my car froze solid overnight (I didn't plug in the block heater) and I had to have it towed to a garage to have it thawed which took 2 days

    Despite growing up in a cold climate doesn;t mean I like it, but I can make the best of it.

    It was a cool 53F at the trail this AM and it was PACKED... For South Florida that is pretty cold, but it was a great AM ride and I put in about 15 miles...
    For me anything below 45 and I am staying indoors... Yup I have acclimatized to the tropical climate over the past 25 years...

    Psff. Canadians and their metric system. Always making it sound as if it's colder than it really is.

    Holy hell, I get up to Muskoka and further up the Georgian Bay occasionally, but Timmins, ON is way the heck up there, eh.
