Recycled trash for warmth

Here's a tip while out riding this winter and you find that you underestimated the weather, look for discarded newspapers on the road, chances are it won't take long to find one as in my case. Stuff the newspaper in your jersey and now you have an recyclable vest.... sooo Boulder right?

Actually this isn't new, riders do this all the time for descents however this is the first time I considered doing it on the flats after I found myself halfway through my Sunday ride and re-remembering how little of a wind break my Pearl Izumi Kodiak jersey was. Thanks to the reader of the Left Hand Valley Courier for discarding the newspaper still in the pastic wrap.

What random, unique winter riding tips do you have?
