- Layering is key: This time of year especially, temperatures can vary wildly. If you start your ride at 8 am and get back at 11, you could be looking at two completely different weather systems. Remember you can always take layers off! To that end…
- Don’t overdo it: This might sound crazy but it is still very possible to overheat yourself. It may be below freezing but you’re still going to work up a sweat no matter what. You’ll still want something that breathes and wicks moisture.
- Wind is the worst: You can be as bundled up as you want but if the wind is still cutting through all your breathable layers, you’re going to feel chilled to the bone. A lightweight, windproof vest or jacket goes a long way.
