Anyone know why automobiles get such worse fuel economy in the winter than in the summer? I know my diesel van gets worse mileage because of the winter mix of diesel, but why do regular gas automobiles get such worse mileage?
I go to this website The Clymb every few days. Right now they have a bunch of cycling stuff cheap on it. I remember when they used to sell one item at a time and now they have dozens of different manufactures. It is a member’s only site, but only takes a minute to sign in, just an email address and password. They have Crank Brothers Candy pedals in the bike section. Last week they had Vittoria tubulars, but I didn’t see them today. I get $25 if someone I refer eventually buys something. They sell lots of other stuff other than cycling related too, mostly camping, climbing, hiking, etc. Here is the link.
Does anyone have any leads where to get some Clement PDX tubulars? Seems like they are sold out just about everywhere.
The weather here in Kansas got cold recently. Anyone know what you body does to compensate or adjust for cold weather. I know when you go to altitude, your body kicks in to make more red cells, but what changes occur in our bodies, so 40 degrees seems freezing cold in the summer and fairly warm in the dead of winter.
I did a blood test a week ago and then had my finger pricked and my hemoglobin measured just a few days later. How can my hemoglobin change 1.5 points in just a few days? I’d assume I would feel a lot better riding with a hemoglobin reading of nearly 17 g/gL.
