Cycling the Polar Vortex

The Polar Vortex swept through New York City this Tuesday bringing record low temperatures. I figured it would be an adventure to brave the cold and did an hour of loops in Prospect Park. When the weather is bad it's actually the best time to go out and enjoy NYC's parks because they are for the most part empty! I prepared the night before and it definitely paid off. If I can recall correctly I wore.

- Endo Customs Compressor Bibs - Pearl Izumi Amfib tights - Uniqlo base layer - EMS heavyweight base layer - Search and State Jersey - Search and State Jacket - Patagonia jacket - Giro gloves - Rapha Overmitt - Giro Codes - Rapha Overshoes - unknown overshoes - Merino socks x 2 - IceBreaker neck warmer heavy - IceBreaker neck warmer light - Pearl Izumi skull cap - Giro Atmos helmet

Now thats a lot of fucking clothes!

On my commute I didn't need as much clothes since I was just heading over the bridge into Soho. T shirt, merino hoodie, SAS jacket and my Patagonia jacket did the job and kept me toasty.
