When I said ‘warming up’ I was thinking of warming up the legs – not the temperature. As it turned out the legs barely got warmed up (barely doing 12 mph today, on our trip to Hamburg it averaged 18-20 mph), but the temperature definitely rose. I learned from the Easter trip not to wear cycling gloves that would leave a spotty sun tan pattern on my hands. Today I wore solid gloves and now have a white stripe around my wrists and completely white hands. I think some strong lotion is needed before we head west.
