Day 7. 30 Days of Biking

The difference between cold and warmth isn’t temperature–it’s movement.

Try it. Ride a bike to work on a cold day. Get the joints, muscles and lungs moving.

You’ll warm up plenty quick.

If you happen to ride too fast, you might even need to cool down before you start the work day.

And if you have to cool down, it really wasn’t all that cold, was it?

Movement makes everything better. Still, we can describe the perfect temperature range for bicycling.

Let’s call it the Goldilocks zone, and, by pedaling through cold and warm days alike, make it as wide as possible.

And more of the year just right.

    Amen to this!
    Since cycling thru the winter these last 5-6 years, I’ve had no colds or flu or any other illness; before, I would always get 1-2 colds per year.
