"Aren't you cold?"
I went on my bike club's ride yesterday. We do the beach bike path that follows the south bay of Los Angeles, starting at Marina Del Rey and finishing in Torrence, around 25 miles round-trip.
On the way back, one of the other women asked me, "aren't you cold?". Nope. It was 20C (68F), and sunny, and we were riding at a good clip. That's me on yesterday's ride above, that's what I was wearing. She was dressed in long pants, a long-sleeved shirt, with a second T-shirt over top the first one, and I'm pretty sure she had shoes and socks on too. Guess I'm still a rugged Canadian... for now.
That's a sand berm behind me, they build them for the winter on the beach. I think they're to stop sand from shifting with the winter winds. I've heard they put up snow fencing too to contain the sand but I didn't see any of that up yet.
