I just assumed you would because your body is trying to keep warm but I looked it up and I could be wrong:

Do You Burn More Calories in Hot or Cold Weather?

You burn fewer calories when you exercise in cold weather than you do when it's hot. The hotter it is, the more extra work your heart has to do to prevent you from overheating. More than 70 percent of the energy produced by your muscles during exercise is lost as heat. So the harder you exercise, the hotter your muscles become. In hot weather, not only must your heart pump extra blood to bring oxygen to your muscles, it must also pump hot blood from your heated muscles to your skin where heat can be dissipated.

On the other hand, in cold weather, your heart only has to pump blood to your muscles and very little extra blood to your skin to dissipate heat. Your muscles produce so much heat during exercise that your body does not need to produce more heat to keep you warm. So your heart works harder and you burn more calories in hot weather. This information should not discourage you from exercising when it’s cold, because staying in shape is a year-round proposition. However, it may help to explain why so many people find the pounds creeping on in the wintertime, even when they stay active.


However this is about exercising in cold weather so it may be different.

You're hot...


Sorry, just had to do it ;)

It was pretty cold on the bike this morning. Been on the bike for just over an hour and the first 15 minutes my fingers just went numb, while wearing gloves!! Ah well... maybe I was just stupid to do a round trip today while the temps will be below 0C. Still, it's dry so no frozen roads and the sun will be shining.
