It’s too cold today …

I’d better get use to this.

It’s cold. Too cold to enjoy cycling outside. -1C. And, apparently it is here to stay.

I know. I know. I’m a wimp. I know many of you ride in colder, harsher weather. I used to as well. But my focus has changed. I ride to train. And I can’t train effectively when I’m cold, and the roads are slippery. Instead, I prefer to stay inside on the spinning bike.

Today, I walked to the gym, did a 45 minute endurance spin averaging 150-200 watts.

Call me a wimp if you like, but I got a more effective workout in. This month, the forecast is for cold, wet weather.

I’ll get out on the bikes when it is dry, and warmer (5C or higher).

  1. No need to explain, man. I don’t ride outside when it’s cold and/or wet because I don’t like it. I think those who choose to are nuts. Simple as that. We get enough miles when the weather is great.

  2. We all have a threshold. Yours is lower than mine and mine is way lower than others I know…besides, training indoors for what you will be doing in the summer is a way better method than trudging through the wet/ice/snow/frost at this time of year
