Another roadbike review lurker/part time poster and I went on a New Years day ride today, a short 32 miles. It was a brisk 29 degrees with a 10 mph wind. Using the "Wind Chill Calculator" http://leav-www.army.mil/weather/Windchil.htm ,
29 degrees became 15 with a 10 mph wind. Add on speeds up to 30, and our tempature was -7. I'm sure that there were gusts more than 10 mph, so we were probably riding in "feels like" temps of below -10!! Not something I'd like to do all the time, but it is fun to get out in the extremes. Happy New Year
