Biking in November
This is what biking in 35°F (1°C) looks like! We haven’t had any snow yet, the roads are clear, the sun is out, and biking has been amazing so far this November. For a typical bike ride in this temperature, I wear what I would normally wear (in this case, I had on a linen sleeveless top layered underneath a cardigan), with my medium-weight jersey jacket, a scarf, gloves, and my winter boots.

I usually get warm about a mile into my ride and stop to unzip my jacket a little and remove the scarf.

Meanwhile, this is what C. looked like back in her trailer. She wears her winter coat and I drape a fleece blanket over her legs. I layer a hat underneath her helmet and have tried gloves on her but she usually just pulls those off. When we stop and I unsnap the trailer cover, her hands always feel warm to the touch as do her cheecks. And she usually greets me with a big smile.

This is winter biking at its easiest and best.

    This is my favorite part about the trailer (and why we still haven’t taken the cargo bike leap), the coziness of being in there with a blanket and the cover. Roozle is always as warm and happy as can be. I love it! C looks like she loves it too! So cute!
