So, I was thinking about frostbite…

But I don’t live in Wisconsin…

It’s cold. No, it’s not Montana, North Dakota, Canada cold – but it’s enough to worry about windchill when you ride a bike to work and the wind comes off the river and whips through the buildings.  dievca was pedalling at a standstill today.

This chart is her friend:

Today’s (Thursday’s) temps in Celsius were -11C (low) to -7.22C (high) winds running at 5-10 mph with gusts at 22 mph. Fahrenheit 12F (low) to 19F (high). It will continue to be cold through the New Year.

dievca’s ride is less than 30 minutes, so she has been good.  But, it makes for tears, frozen breath, and ridiculous-looking layered outfits. When its cold, fashion goes out the window….
Apparently that is the theme, this week, safety first.

Here are dievca’s cold weather standbys:

dievca wishes you luck and stay warm.
