A wise man who rides track bikes around midtown with huge gears says this. It makes a lot of sense. I started riding this morning, in the rain. I heard from a few people that they didn't want to ride in the rain since they don't have proper gear, but when it's 72 degrees, you don't need anything different than what you would wear on any sunny 72 degree day. I'll try to ride tomorrow, and the next day.
I've still got an ankle issue I worry about. It doesn't stop me from pedaling hard, but it does slow me down and hurt. After 45-50 minutes of pedaling hard, it just stops wanting to work. Recommend me some medicine.
