Brrr... misjudged temperature

Home after work, Friday afternoon, a need to ride...

It was a bright, sunny day, and it appeared to be a good day for riding. It was a good day, but I definitely misjudged the temperature. Correction - I misjudged the clothing I needed for the 51 degree day. I headed out on my bike dressed in shorts + knee warmers, a long-sleeved jerseyplus a sleeveless long underwear shirt plus a wind vest, and summer gloves. And it was a good day for riding, but I should have been wearing a full wind jacket plus liners under my gloves. My 21-mile after-work ride definitely left me a bit chilled.

It's days like today when I really appreciate a hot shower!
