  9. Welcome to the forum, you will get used to wearing more layers when riding in cold weather. Not a lot of fun this time of year but Spring is not far away.

    Enjoy. Learn. Practise.

    It's amazing sometimes the difference wind chill can make to an already cold morning/day.
    Layer up and don't skimp too much on gear. The further you ride the more cold will seep in.
