I don't know how you can stand that.
The last time I did any winter cycling, I had to stop every thirty seconds and blow on my fingers to stop the pain. When I cycled across town in the freezing rain a few years ago then got inside and let the circulation return to my toes, I had to bite down on a towel to stop myself screaming.

I grew up in Wales, near the Preseli mountains
the rain doesn't come down vertically, it hits you horizontally. There is no protection from it - the cold and wind gets into your marrow. This here London is a tropical paradise, a little frost is just dainty decoration.

I'm comfortable with admitting that I am jealous of you right now.
