    What's the temp during that ride ?

    Those conditions introduce some additional hazards to safe operation and I wouldn't be doing it on purpose.
    Don't believe everything that you think.

    I think it was about 7 degrees celcius.

    That's getting pretty close to the temperature where there can be some unexpected icing and the markings on the road can be slippery too (even more than when just wet).

    I'm happy that you enjoy it but things like that make so nervous that I can't enjoy it at all (In addition to getting the shivers from low temps and riding in the wind).

    I used to do it as a full time job many years ago.
    Thats how I learned to come to terms with it and even enjoy the challenge.

    No thanks, I did 2.5 hours in 19*f weather one night and that was it for me. I don't ride in weather under 50* anymore.

    The coldest ride I ever took was -14°C (7°F), riding a 50ccm Vespa scooter to my girlfriend's house at the end of February.

    Never again! Even with 2 jackets and a full set of all-weather gear, it was miserable. I had to stop during the ride to get some hot soup at a restaurant, since I was starting to get hypothermia.

    Now my bike goes into "hibernation" for the winter - around the same time that I put the winter tires on my car.

    It just looks cold and uncomfortable, but definitely worth the awesome video!
