Ears, fingers and feet are the key to being comfortable when they temps drop. If they ain't comfy, you ain't happy!

“Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever.”-Lance Armstrong

I have an EarHugger Headband. It's super thin, fleece lined, wind proof and very warm. It fits nicely under a helmet.

I wear a ski helmet that's rated for cycling. The helmet has removable, super warm ear covers that have kept my ears warm each winter for the past several years. It means having 2 helmets but snuggly warmth is worth it.

Sonic makes ear plugs that will cut some of that out yet let you hear things around you.

I use them at work and for trade shows with a lot of background noise yet I can talk and hear conversation.

Do a Google search.

Today I went for a ride, and the wind was really whipping. I was comfortable except my ears. They weren't too cold, but it felt like someone drove a rod into each of them. I tried moving my jaw around, wondering if it had something to do with pressure, but that didn't seem to do much. The pain is slightly behind and below each ear. I never had this problem when the weather was nicer.

What is that from and how do I prevent it?
