Dunwich Dynamo - What to wear?
edited July 2010
How cold is it likely to get through the night?
Will I be ok with just some arm and knee warmers?
Will fingerless gloves be enough?
I'm not a wimp by any means but I'd rather not freeze for the 120 miles!
Check the weather forecast!
Seriously though, take some warm stuff with you and a wind/waterproof. You do chill down in the night (especially when you lose the tail light ahead and have to hang about checking the route). The beach is also a bit nippy at 4/5/6 in the morning...
I checked the hourly forecast for last night at Dunwich and it didn't drop below 14/15 degrees - that seems on the warm side!
Bring a jacket. The time I did it before ('06), it got really cold and uncomfortable in the middle of the night.
That said, the weather does look perfect for this year.
