While NOT QUITE at the conditions above !
It’s official – The Sun has set on yet another year of cycling, for this weekend I put away all my team kit and got out the thermals.
On Monday morning, boy was I glad I did. my Garmin said it was -0.3, I was dressed in:
Oxford “Chill-out” thermal base layer pants (With Lycra pants over)
My Thermal Astana Top
but the REAL gem I have discovered, is my merino wool base layer top, talk about keeping me toasty warm !!!
Last year, I was wearing upto 6 layers as I was THAT cold, while the temp last year did drop to Minus 15, I don’t feel that I’m gonna need so many this year due to my good quality base layers !
During long, hard, hot , summer training rides, I tend not to perspire much, check out what my merino base layer did in 9 miles at -0.3
The great thing being it “Wicked” away that sweat from me, leaving me feeling warm, fresh and dry.
At £14.99 my base layer is cheaper than wearing 6 layers :0)
So for all of those who have heard about, but not tried merino wool , I say this, “Just Do IT”
During discussion with a colleague at work, it was decided, that there are a HUGE number of road signs on our roads currently , many redundant too, here is a comedy take on some of them.
First off, Cancer, its a bitch and one day, this bitch is gonna get whats owed to it, having now discovered that not one but TWO family members are suffering with it, today I wake up to the news that ‘Smokin Joe Frazier has passed away after suffering from Liver Cancer !
