Keep warm, protect against cold.

If you're riding in poor weather conditions, getting colder, wetter etc. take a leaf out of the vintage motorcyclists book.

Apart from slowing down, stop and have a break and a cup of tea etc. Buy a newspaper and put it under your jacket so it covers your chest, it will further insulate you against the cold weather.

Also put plastic bags over your socks under your boots and get some plastic type gloves available at petrol stations and wear them under your gloves.

All these tips will keep you warmer and safer till you arrive at your destination.
