I feel so guilty! I haven't been taking ANY pictures while riding lately. My camera ran out of batteries, I can't find my charger, and it's cold so I just forget. I did get my sister to shoot this photo of me in the LRT station with the Dahon today.
This is basically the coat I've been wearing for the past several weeks. It's a light winter coat padded with cotton. And I've usually got a wool hat on too. My outfit underneath was a long sleeved cream t-shirt under a knitted multi-coloured sweater dress. Grey patterned tights and grey ankle boots.
I only had to bike one way today so I didn't ride the Pashley, and Don also had a bike themed door/office at their open house. I took the Dahon over to his work because it's a more social bike (and small enough to fit in the node at his office's opening). People tried riding it up and down the hall because it's tiny and were also folding and unfolding it over and over again. Cute to see people excited about a bike!
Things have I discovered so far my first winter on a bike:
Riding in light snow is really nice! It's very quiet and peaceful.
Corners. Don't lean into them, especially after a case of freezing rain.
My brakes sometimes sound squeaky.
Cover the ears.
It gets dark here really fast now (sun sets at 4 pm) so lights lights lights!
I do not wear any extra outdoor performance gear for my riding. Just my regular winter things like mitts, a hat, scarf, and coat.
