Chilly cycling in the Finnish countryside

Today was like yesterday, but the the sun was finally visible! In November in Finland that means it will be colder. And cold it was. On the countryside the temperature was below zero. I was kind of prepared. I had triple shoe-covers, neoprene toe-covers by Castelli, water and wind resistant summer shoe-covers and on top neoprene shoe-covers. Still, approaching the second hour in the saddle my toes started to freeze. But I managed to do almost 3,5 hours without bigger problems. It seems I need to switch to my winter cycling-shoes if the weather will be sticking below zero, and according to the latest forecasts it will.

 Despite sub zero degrees, the sun is always welcomed

Christmas is also approaching, and it's only a month or so. That means it's time to start testing the mulled wines. That's what we did yesterday evening. Yum.

Next week Stockholm and the promised Fincycling news! Have a good Sunday and beginning of the work-week tomorrow!
