    This was my fourth trip out this year and the longest at 130 miles.
    Obviously it was cold, so heated grips, heated seat and Keiss heated vest deployed.
    Decided to stick to main A roads as some of our local B roads stay in the shade all day and we still had a frost at 10.30 am.

    The Abbey looking good in the sun.

    Ignored the sign that said no cars and picked my own parking spot

    Blubberhouses Moor was a bit colder than I expected

    What a brilliant blue sky :sun: and spectacular scenery, Steve! Glad to see you out on your bike in spite of the frostiness. :) I did notice that in addition to the low temperature warnings there were also a couple of indicators of low petrol. I hope you weren't too far out in the middle of nowhere when you snapped that pic! :eek::joy: Thanks for sharing your rideout with us.:heart:

    @steve lovatt: I hope you are defrosted meanwhile. Thanks for sharing those great pictures with us!
    My biggest problem during riding at very low temperatures are my feet. How do you deal with this issue?

    Thanks Sandi, yes it looks a bit desperate doesn't it but I knew I had enough range to get to the nearest filling station. :D

    Thanks Markus - I've actually never experienced cold feet, even when my hands were freezing on a bike with no heated grips. My boots are Dainese goretex ones, which I wear with normal socks.
    The Keis heated bodywarmer I have allows you to attach heated gloves and heated socks to it, but that would be a lot of wires!

    I suffer from cold feet too. I bought Gerbing heated socks which has been an absolute game changer for me. They are brilliant.

    They are a bit of a faff to run the cables up your trousers to the Gerbing controller, but totally worth the extra effort for a long cold ride. I have them on the lowest heat setting (low/medium and high available) which has been perfect for me.

    Hope this helps Markus.
