    When I arrived at work this morning, a thin layer of frost had formed around the bottom of my jacket! I felt hard as nails!

    Mind you, that feeling was quickly replaced by the scalding feeling of a lukewarm shower hitting my feet which were like blocks of ice.

    Had to wear shorts today too - definitely not through choice! Knee warmers for Christmas please.
     
  2. You have a shower at work?

    I've been there almost 19 years where I work and still no sign of a shower.This year we've got our own place to lock our bikes up.

    I've had days when I've arrived at work with ice forming in my beard.

    Don't have a beard any more though.
     
  4. Ive had this as a school kid, jacket/ hair as stiff as a board (I went to school in Rosyth, maybe its the air there) but Ive never experienced it cycling.

    Are you in York UP? I thought you were in Belgique or was that someone else? Anyway an icy beard is excellent.

    Och ya big jessie! Cold feet, pah! I cycle to work every day in speedos and a string vest, no gloves and I wear open toed sandals on my feet. I've also notice lately that cars are giving me more room. Can't think why.....? :rolleyes:

    Ok I may be stretching the truth a little, but just think of me wearing all of the above and I guarantee I will have put you off your lunch!! :smile:

    Ever thought about getting a better job instead of just whining about it?

    Everyone at work was impressed when I walked in with a thin layer of ice over my jacket, helmet and not so thin layer on the fingers of my gloves. But of a shock when the ice on my eyebrows began to melt though

    Yeah, yeah. [Heavy irony] It's only drawn on, Magnatom. [/Heavy irony].

    Actually, in the caricature underneath it all, I have a 'tache, but that's gone now too.

    And I've always posted from York. Jamais Belgique.

    Didn't notice any particular ice forming on me this morning - it was really cold, but really dry (not really any frost/ice). Sadly, there was no heating on the train, so I was actually colder on the train than I had been on the bike (after the first mile)
