    *cough* there's a way to fix that and upload a ride if you've done the same route before *cough*

    I like to think of it as machine learning - you're trying to teach Strava what it should have recorded to properly document your ride.

    I rode with Velotoze shoe covers yesterday. Kept my feet reasonably not cold. They don't really provide that much thermal insulation, but do a very good job keeping the wind off. Although done differently than regular shoe covers, they go on pretty easily. Taking them off is a minor PITA though. Can't attest to their waterproofness and actually hope I don't have to. I'm guessing they're probably not enough for sub-freezing temps, but I don't know what is really. I think where they'll really shine is in what I call "Belgian spring" weather, which is hopefully not too far off.

    Also, I discovered they make a cover specifically for MTB shoes: https://www.velotoze.com/products/ta...nt=51664397254

    NOTE: These are very road shoe specific covers with racers/die hard roadies in mind. Not to be used with MTB shoes or any shoes with a recessed cleat, e.g., SPD. Designed to be almost like shrink wrap in terms of fit. Both waterproof and aero. Very functional and EuroPro.

    It is difficult to properly flip off a scofflaw car driver when wearing lobster mitts.

    Perhaps a different design would work better?

    You're right, low temp cut is probably about 35-40 degrees. But for anything wet, velotoze can't be beat.

    thank you for the "at work giggles"...oh how I resemble that remark. It's frustrating when they think you are happily waving in said giant mitts, versus trying to communicate ...keep up foreign relations...you know

    Think British Commonwealth edition for use with lobster mitts. Just remember you have to show it with the back of the hand to the recipient.

    Haven't ridden into work in a while. Was thinking how much fun I was having riding through Georgetown and along Pennsylvania and how the cars and I worked together to get around trucks parked in the far right lane (the de facto am bike lane).

    ...And then I hit G street past the White House, where everyone was actively trying to kill me.
