Winter is here

Winter has arrived, well, what we call winter in Barcelona.
Temperatures don't usually drop under 0ºC, but it is windy and humid and it doesn't get much higher than 10ºC.

Wind means that some of our favorite trails see some trees fall down, usually at the exit of a fast corner! Humid means that some already sketchy downhills get even scarier!
But it also means that when the sun shines, and it usually does, the trails grip much more that the sandy surface we are use to. Take a look at the brown color, far away from the summer white color of our local trails.

How do you wear for this kind of weather?
If you don't start very early the sun has already made things warmer. You can ride shorts, an underwear layer (short sleeve) and a winter jacket. If it is colder you can use a mid layer, better if it is short sleeved too. You will soon heat up as you start climbing, and the downhills are not fast and long enough to freeze you.
