Anyone who goes bicycling in the kind of weather predicted or Sunday, monday, and Tuesday needs a suicide counselor immediately! In that kind of weather, anyone who goes bicycling will face dangerous hypothermia and frostbite in about 2 to 5 minutes, 7 minutes at most. In that kind of weather, not only will your sweat saturate your clothes and conduct your heat away and the cold to you, but your sweat will freeze into solid ice right in your clothes.

Anyone who goes bicycling in the kind of weather predicted for Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday will need suicide prevention counselling at once! In that kind of weather, dangerous hypothermia and widespread frostbite will occur, for someone on a bicycle, in about 2 to 5 minutes, 7 minutes at most. Also, not only does your sweat saturate all of your clothes when you exercise in the winter, rendering their insulating capabilities ineffective, but in the kind of freeze predicted, your sweat will freeze right into solid ice right within your clothes. The kind of cold predicted is the kind that will literally cut right through you like a buzz saw through plastic.
