    First winter/snow ride... ever

    Well, I've been missing out. Should have ridden in the winter all these years. We got some snow and it was 14 degrees when I left home. I need to find a wind proof layer for my upper body... other than that I was warm enough. I didn't realize it until I got home but I was actually sweatin pretty good. 8 miles with layers, snow boots, and wind was a pretty good workout.



    The investment in Dillinger 4's and Bar Mitts was a good move.

    Woohoo!
    Yeah, figuring out the layers to stay warm but not sweat, is tricky.

    Congrats! Breathable stuff is usually NOT DH skiing stuff and breathable is what you want for your core.

    Yessssssssss!

    Jacket with many zippers and vents will do the trick. But keep an extra layer in your bag just in case you have to stop.
