mask of the winter ninja

Phew.... strong winds battled me almost to a standstill on the bike ride to work today. Definitely a good workout. Fortunately I bought a sort of thermal ninja mask yesterday to keep my face warm during winter rides and I like it quite a bit except for how much moisture my breath generates inside it. Must learn to breath drier.

Learning to regulate my body temperature has been a challenge overall. If I dress properly for the weather, I start overheating about halfway through my ride. But that jacket I got for the Iceland trip a couple years ago has come in very hand, because I can leave the thermal part unzipped, but the anti-wind and anti-rain shell fully zipped, and stay pretty comfortable for the whole ride.
