Brrr – a hard frost overnight, on the day I had to head out at 8:30 on the bike for a morning spent ripping up fencing in a biting wind*. I hadn’t got past the first field (where even the cows had frost on their coats, poor things) before I remembered about winter riding: the frozen toes, fingers and EARS. And that nothing hurts quite like a frozen ear, except maybe a defrosting one. Time to add ear warmers to the ever-lenghtening queue of knitting projects – and maybe get me some of these (via Copenhagen Cycle Chic). Although signalling might prove a challenge.
It all makes the house feel nice and warm, though, once you get back in.
