I am not a cold weather person, yet do enjoy snowshoeing. I am guessing that low temperatures+perspiration+poor wicking base layers and wind chill could make this possible.

“When the body parts started to warm up after the finish, the pain was unbearable,” Remi Lindholm said after finishing 28th in event.

It wasn't the first time for him, I would be concerned about nerve and tissue damage.

That's why they make windbriefs. (Don't ask me how I know).

For a brief time, I worked at AT&T near Chicago. I rode my bicycle to work. When November came it got really cold. A few times I stuffed a plastic bag in the front of my pants. I was really happy to return back to Phoenix before the winter really set in.

So do you still stuff a plastic bag in your pants? Chumley wanted to know, but was afraid to ask.

Sounds like you want to know. I already know. Corfman and I have no secrets. :roll:

I haven't ridden in single digit temps since.
