Well, in my own limited manner yes haha.

Video is not that special but it was a nicer opening than most.

Yesterday's adventure; 133 km - 82 miles // 7h 28m // 3,095m - 10154ft

Passo Xomo - Passo Borcalo - Passo Coe and Cima Valbona were the main challenges during this ride.

From around 85km - 53 miles it was mostly downhill, starting with an epic downhill of approx 30km - 19 miles. Quite chilly though at 4 degrees celcius / 39F! I really like the Castelli Gabba though for these type of conditions, very impressive piece of kit when used in the correct setting.

39 degrees Fahrenheit?? Jesus. No thank you. Add wind chill to that and I'm basically dead.

Correct, that was at approx 1800m altitude.

I brought the Rapha shadow jacket which in combination with the Gabba was perfect. Was quite happy I brought gloves as well which I normally never do.

In terms of bibs I was using the Rapha winter bibs, which have a thermo roubaix fleece lining which was much appreciated on the downhill haha.

4°c is fine as long as you've got a good windproof layer! Though near me there isn't much time to get cold as the longest descent is no more than 1 minute

stunning scenery 'mori..! sounds like a fantastic ride...despite the cold

not uncommon around here to have road rides in the 30's / low 40's F. I'm the only guy that shows up to cold weather rides in shorts.

The only cold weather kit I have left is my old 7-Eleven Descente jacket which works surprisingly well in all conditions, even below freezing. Long winter bibs are gone as well as my old shoe covers. I just don't ride enough to warrant spending money on new stuff at the moment. That leaves me with only bib shorts for the legs. I always apply a good skin lotion to my legs prior to heading out and that does enough to keep the heat in. A layer of Saran-wrap over the forward part of my foot act as ghetto wind blockers. I used to use a sheet of newspaper but the ink f**ks up your socks Razz
