During the winter you need to take every opportunity to ride you get, because it could be snowing/raining/icing/spaghetti and meatballs tomorrow. This season has been a wild one (on the East and West coast) - from sunshine to snow in the blink of an eye. Carly and JP seized the moment and went for a little cruise from their New York home base on a "nice" winter day.
Our new winter layering gear is built to be useful in multiple conditions. Everything from 50 degrees down to freezing can be handled with our thermal offerings. Our favorite new product is our thermal bib shorts paired with the thermal leg warmers. The combo allows for chilly early morning starts and if you're lucky enough to catch the sun and some warmer temps, just peel off the leg warmers. The Bar Bag serves as a perfect storage space for shed layers, pack extra gloves and cookies. Always take extra gloves! Always. Cookies too.
Early season rides are some of the best. That feeling of coming out of hibernation along with the cool wind on your face. Staying warm and comfortable obviously makes for an even better experience. We like to start our rides out with hot water in our water bottles. It may sound weird, but those first few warm sips are great.
