    Trying out how to post. I was blocked for some reason. Someone must know my dark secrets. I do love dogs and other people's puppies.

    Frozen ears are a thing of the past with this one awesome hack! Use two spare beer can insulators, just slide them over your helmet straps for a winter weather-beating upcycled riding hack! Turn them inside out if you want a modest non-advertising look. Easy to slide off if you actually get too warm. (Inconcievable for me at the moment as it is -5 in eastern Wisconsin right now!). e
    What a great idea. And the bonus is you have a beer cozy when you get to your mid-ride beer stop and one to share!

    I've been using the newspaper bag trick for decades, but only for rain. Never thought of it for cold though. But sometimes it makes my feet sweat, so I wouldn't think it'd be good for a ride of more than 5-10 miles. Is it?

    No. This is actually a terrible idea. Plastic (and items like plastic such as latex or nitrile gloves on hands) do not breathe at all. Your hands/feet WILL sweat. That sweat has nowhere to go. The sweat then gets cold, as wet things tend to do when it is chilly out. Then your extremities get even colder, which could potentially lead to nerve/tissue damage, frost bite, or hypothermia.

    I'm figuring out how to post while also trying to save my FS18 registration. I guess the first one didn't go thru. I got a pair of toe warmers for xmas so I could stop wrapping my feet in aluminum foil, somehow the Mrs. didn't think that was an attractive look...

    Looking forward to doing this. Hope this one works!

    Oh, and I like dogs.
