I went out on a training ride last Saturday morning. The weather report was rather normal: 3 degrees Celsius, light rain. So the plan was to follow the program and ride for about 90 minutes. About 10 minutes in I realized it was not only raining: it was wet snow. My gloves and shoes starting and get soaked and soon I was feeling the coldness through my extremities. Soon after I finished my main drill I turned back home. Luckily I was about 20 minutes from home. By the time I got home, I cannot manipulate my fingers to take off my cycling gear! Took me a good few minutes to take off all the wet stuff using my stiff fingers without flexing.
