They say that if your toes hurt from the cold, then don’t worry. It’s when you can’t feel them that frostbite starts to set in. Luckily for me my toes just hurt. After a few days of freezing cold and winds upwards of 60kmh, I finally got the courage to get back on the bike. -5 Celsius with wind of 30 kmh. Yikes. My gatorade had a bit of slush by the end of the ride – seriously.
Riding with the wind at my back was great. Like there was no wind at all and super quiet. The other direction ……. was awful.
God bless my balaclava.
