Peeling back a corner of the universe to glimpse the utter chaos that lies behind.

I am not much of a winter biker, but it was a balmy 1 degree and breezy today so I decided to go for a ride. I was actually a little too warm(!). I wore a fleece top and a wind proof shell and long johns under my jeans. Wool socks and some mid weight winter boots on the feet, and a combo hat and face mask (not a balaklava - believe it or not you can't find the damn things around here anymore due to the hockey tournament). The only real problem was that my mittens pretty much made it impossible to use the brakes - I had to Fred Flintsone it once but otherwise that no problem.
