Independence day cycling

It’s been around six years since the last time I cycled on a winter day. This year I had a small autumn break from cycling, but now I’m back after putting on the Schwalbe Marathon Winter 35-622 tires. The temperature was -8C, so not that cold and almost dry roads and paths. A blast to drive.

Some of the gear:

  • Helmet
  • Rapha winter hat
  • Rapha winter collar
  • Ski goggles
  • Rapha classic softshell jacket
  • Rapha + Paul Smith merino jersey
  • Mavic thermo gloves
  • dhb flashlight thermal bibs
  • SOC winter running pants
  • Mavic aksium shoes with Mavic warmshells

That’s a fair amount of winter cycling gear, but they did work well and I ended up with a wide smile on my face.
