So I went out again today, and the temps were in the mid-teens so I wore my ‘invisible man’ getup again. I had ridden a few miles and was feeling rather superior when I saw another cyclist coming from the opposite direction. Wow, the first cyclist I had seen on the road since last week! As he got closer, I could see he was riding a hybrid and wearing street clothes and a winter coat with:
– NO gloves
– NO helmet
– NO headgear of any kind
Plus, he was headed into a rather stiff N headwind while I enjoyed the tailwind assist. I don’t know how long he was out or how much longer he planned to be out, but his hands and head were bright red! I hope I don’t hear about him on the news tonite. If I don’t, I must regretfully hand him the ‘hard man’ trophy.
