Great news from the weather front, the forecast calls for 2 weeks of cold and dry weather. Today already saw sunny spells with temps around 4 degrees C when I set out for a ride around dusk. Not too difficult, just an easy ride along fairly flat roads, all things considered. Near the end the cold was tangible as I felt my toes freeze up. I left with just some windstoppers over my shoes, but those don't do much against the cold as I found out. Quite a few bikers out there this evening, most without light I must add, only some had what it takes to be visible in the dark. My own light was shining in its lowest setting except during downhills when I went a lot faster than 30kph and a flick of the switch is enough to add some serious visibility on my front end. When I arrived home it was pitch black and freezing again. A little shell of the waxing moon was visible over the southern horizon.
