Feeling like the weather's a bit rough to ride?

8.8 F (see comments) is -13 c :shock: watch the video linked from his last comment - he's going 26 mph on that frozen road at some points...and he's climbed over 2.5 million feet this year in 20,000 miles.

I've cycled and ridden mopeds out of necessity back in Austria when we had -25c last winter. I would not have even considered looking out the window, but that nutter goes out for fun. He's nuts!
