This week has been a blur of bike commuting with buddies (Elizabeth and Mr. Dottie) and awkwardly working winter gear back into my routine. Waking up to temperatures in the 30’s and 40’s, I’ve been putting more thought into my layering strategy. The goal is to stay warm but not overdress.
My outfit every day has been some variation of a dress, tights and a sweater. I’ve been overdressing, but my layers are easy to remove. In the picture below you can see that my front basket is loaded, the contents including high heeled work shoes (gotta wear warm boots now), huge mittens, a scarf, a peacoat and safety glasses. All of that was necessary yesterday morning, but overkill today.
In preparation for the cold weather, we’re working on a how-to guide for riding in winter. How is everyone doing with the weather so far? What specific questions or issues would you like us to address?
Let us know and we’ll make sure to include it in the how-to guide!
