Nice! That's what it looked like when I tried it too, except I had some pretty wild billowing plooms
of ice fog rise into the sky. My neighbours must have wondered what the hell I was doing.

Coldest Ive ridden in was 15=BA F. Hey, that's pretty low for South Carolina!

Also from Winnipeg, rode on that cold morning of -40C, got about 7 KM, before the chain was frozen,
the headset stiff. This morning got my first winter flat, that is not fun to change.

I took a waterbottle with me, but because of the motion, it froze about 3/4, the outsides were
solid, but some water splashing in the core of the bottle/ice.

You do dress differently from -30 to -40, but after -40 you cant move with anymore layers on.

The next time it gets that cold, I'm going to have to try tossing some water up in the air, and get
some pics.
