Dreamqueen Posted November 5, 2012 Share Posted November 5, 2012 Hi everyone, I joined a while ago but have posted almost nothing...I lurk a lot and get inspiration though! Today, I have a problem I hope all the outdoor cyclists can help me with. My plan is to continue cycling outdoors for as long as possible. I go between 26-30 km (16-18.5 mi) these days but could go longer--if my feet weren't turning into painful frozen lumps of hell at around the halfway mark. Right now, the morning temps are about 1C/33F. In these conditions, I've got everything else figures out--my hands, head/ears, core and legs are good. The last time I went, I wore my cycling shoes and two pairs of thinnish socks...horrible. Tomorrow, I'll try heavier shoes and two pairs of socks, at least one of which will be thick (though not wool, which while warmer, I'm horribly allergic to). But I worry. And I wonder if there's something obvious I'm missing--this is my first attempt at riding recreationally through the winter and so I can use all the help I can get! Thanks!
