oh toes

-15F this morning, that's a new low for me on the bike. I learned the following:

1. Freewheels work inconsistently at best when grease freezes

2. Bodies generate plenty of heat, but keeping toes warm is a losing battle.

3. Cars seem to be more respectful at lower temperatures. Though my sample size is low, I was surprised at the extra room granted this morning, and at nearly every intersection someone unnecessarily yielded for me.

4. Colder = slower. Though the roads were pretty clean, and I felt like I was working hard, it took me longer than ever to make it to work. Not sure if it was because of restricted movements due to the extra layer of cloths
