Adding Comfort Makes Riding In The Cold Bearable
No matter what type of weather you are riding in it is important to be comfortable as you ride. It is as important as it is to stay hydrated in the extreme heat. In cold weather, we want to protect our bodies because there are physical symptoms involved with cold weather exposure.
Hypothermia can be a problem if you let yourself get cold enough. Some of us consider ourselves tough and will be shivering as we battle the cold riding. If you are like me I take these things as a challenge at times but this could be a symptom of hypothermia.
There are other symptoms as dizziness, exhaustion or skin discoloration. Many health services warn of these possibilities to protect us from over exposing ourselves to cold weather.
How Can We Prepare Ourselves?
Okay, tough riders I know we want to say mentally but it takes some help of dressing properly as well. In the cycling world, there are some great items you can purchase to help you battle cold weather. There are some attractive thermal cycling outfits in men & women models that help you stay warm and look good.
There are other items such as a mask, gloves, socks, helmet liners and even heated items that will give you a chance at being comfortable when the weather is a little bit too cold to have to ride in without some skin protection. You might say why ride in it? But for some of us, it just goes with the territory.
This site has a store that you can browse around in with many of the cycling needs that can help you keep warm as you take on the colder days of riding your bike. Take a look at Ron’s Cycle Plus while you are visiting. After all, we like to not only provide information we also like to make available some great products to try and help you save at the same time.
Staying Dry Is Of Importance
Cold-weather warmth is more than keeping the cold off your body it is also important to stay dry. We all know that once the hands and feet get cold we are about to lose the battle. So make sure you have something on that will help keep you dry in case of a little condensation in the air or rain.
Once you get wet it will be hard to fend off cold weather no matter what you have done to prepare yourself. I have been through that before and I am sure some of you have too.
So this cold season dress appropriately and enjoy your bike riding because I know there are some of us that will not let the temperature deter us from hopping in the saddle and riding where we want to go or just the normal ride out that we love to do sometimes.
Thanks for visiting and feel free to share some of your cold riding moments with everyone. There is nothing like the old riding tales. Who says fisherman can tell the best tales.
