Ok I noticed the same thing with speed and cold. If you think about it, it’s contradictory in itself…. the windchill is making it cold and you are throttling more creating more windforce and more feels like …cold. The urgency in your head and instinct needs to be slowed down. Yes your getting to a warmer area faster but your also creating a frostier feel by creating more wind on yourself. Also …yea….. gotta be careful near lakes, ponds,creeks and here swamps. Excess moisture that lingers near them add to the temperature drop.
I bought some Alpinestars (link somewhere in lost posts) and they do more then well enough to keep the cold and wind off. I ride 38-35 degrees air temp and add the 75+mph. they do fine.
Absolutely always layer…… like your mom used to tell ya….. if you got it you can take it off…..but if you don’t …you can’t put it back on.
I got to ride yesterday myself after a week off…… here in NC we have had a couple of frigid days. thankfully twice already we have had snow flurries….and dang it if I can’t ride atleast it can do is snow. It always amazes me how much better I get to feeling after a decent ride.
Yesterday is a memory, tomorrow is a prediction, but today…… is a Bi**h
