It's getting to that time of the year that your nads want to drop off.\n\nI was wondering what hints people have for riding in the cold, with\nstuff like clothing, bike preparation and riding style.\n\nFor clothing, obvious. Wrap up warm in layers. Use silk glove linings\nif poss. Long Johns for the legs and as a last resort, tights. Yes,\nyes, I know, but they bloody work (according to a mate).\n\nFor bike preparation, what can people suggest? Warm tyres are a bonus,\nbut take longer to warm up obviously. But do tyre pressures need to be\nadjusted? Is a change of oil necessary? (Something I've never done,\nbtw.) Any other preps necessary?\n\nFor riding style. What can be done to improve confidence? Ride like\nit's wet? What part of the road to aim for? The same? In the 'tyre\ntracks' of cages, as it'll be warmer? What stuff should be avoided?\n\nAny suggestions would be welcome.
