Frost Bike on the Bike?

It’s been a great dry month (late February/early March) but very cold with severe night frosts. Having Skiied and Snowboarded in the frosty chills of Canada (down to -40C) my nose has previously been frost bitten.

Once exposed to frost bite the skin never heals 100% and is therefore more susceptible to new attacks. I’m convinced that cycling down hill in the shade at speeds in excess of 40mph,the wind chill has dropped the temperature sufficiently to freeze the tip of my nose enough to be frost bitten again.Its dry cracked red and sore.

But when wrapped up in 4 tops, 2 pairs of pants and overshoes the rest of the body was so hot I got a sweat on! Such is life when spring training on the bike in the Lake District.
