I think you can agree that chilly days like these call for one thing, KNITWEAR. There is nothing like wrapping yourself up to look like a stuffed goose in a winter jacket. At least I’m safe in the knowledge that if I took a tumble from my bicycle, I am guaranteed to have a comfy landing. I am adamant that the cold weather will NOT beat me! A good motivator has been the B- ICYCLE challenge which has been a success so far. I haven’t succumbed to the muggy, dry tube yet, even on weekends I have been scooting around town in all elements. I hope you have managed to keep your bicycle free from the lure hibernation over the last couple of months too!
This being my first winter commuting on two-wheels, I have now wised up to the importance of wearing ginormous thick layers. I can proudly admit that today I even had a teeny little bit of sweat on my neck...SUCCESS! My attire of choice this week has been my extra, extra, extra thick woolly jumper and my homemade knitted scarf. Married together I become so fat I can barely fit my coat on over the top. It’s a great combination and I feel like a tasty hot jacket potato on my bicycle rides. Here is the look:

Do you have any unusual preferences for keeping away from the chill on the bicycle? Any tips to avoid chilly toe syndrome?
