Tea for one.

Taking a tip from the cold weather classic riders'...
In case you're wondering my choice was Traditional English!

One of the comforting aspects of cold weather riding is switching from plain water to hot, strong tea. It was bitterly cold yesterday about 8 Celcius/overcast and a biting wind made it a challenge. I wore layers and even wore a neck gaiter and touque (that's a warm knitted cap, eh!). I was tempted not to go on my usual hour and a half route but I packed a uplifting waterbottle of hot tea and honey. It made the ride that much better. I have to figure out to insulate it by putting some wrap around it. Or I could get an insulated bottle. Anyways, the hot tea/honey was most welcome!
