Safety Suggestion of the Month
Weather reports during the winter time invariably includes references to the “wind chill”. But, how many of us really understand what “wind chill” actually is? Here’s a trivia question for the Chapter to consider for our next Chapter Gathering.
It’s a nice winter day and the roads are free of ice and gravel. The temperature is 35 degrees. It seems like a good day to jump on the bike and run to the grocery store to pick up a gallon of water for the humidifier. After you leave the store you decide you want to take the bike around town for a bit. If you’re riding at 45 miles per hour the “wind chill” will be 19 degrees.
How long can you ride without the gallon of water freezing?
