What Was The Temperature of Your Ride Today?

50 degress F. Yes, 50.

I ended up wearing my windproof/fleece lined leggings today but still wore a short sleeved jersey.

Ride home is supposed to be in the high 70s/low 80s.

I REALLY prefer riding in high temps rather than low!

Well...after three nights of no real sleep the temp was nice and warm under the covers! 50s aren;t bad to start as long as it warms up a bit I would have to consider leg and arm warmers after a long hot summer. Seems the cooler temps have come quickly this year!

Mine started off at 76 at 7:15 AM and ended up at 84 at 9:30 AM. The humidity was at 70% but the 12-15 mph winds made for a comfortable but hard ride toward the end.

I can't shake the chill I have from this AM, part of the problem is I have so much hardware in me that once I get cold it takes a loooooooong time to warm up.

How do you like arm and leg warmers? I'd think they'd be a bit of an annoyance, no?

No ride for me today as I had to pick up my bike from the shop.

Temp would have been 51*F under brightly shining sun with zero clouds in the sky!

I love a cool start and this morning fit that bill to a tee. Had these same conditions a few weeks ago and got to use my brand new arm warmers which was a new experience for me. I loved 'em. Once I got warmed up a bit I could roll 'em off and stuff 'em in my back pocket, without having to get off the bike.

They are the perfect solution. They don't bother me in the least bit. In fact when was in Dallas last year I saw tonz of folks wearing them in the summer heat. Found out they are same but different , UV blocking. I would not like that I don't believe!

Low to mid 70's, felt great! I biked along at a leisurely pace most of the time, on road, gravel trails, just enjoying everything!

Mid 80's at the start, dropping into the 70's. It was clouded over, so quite nice, if a bit muggy - for here. lol. Beautiful afternoon.
