Jen Voigt Again: Calculate Your Jens Factor
Unfortunately, for those of us riding to work in Canada at this time of year the scale doesn't really work since we pretty well never get out of Jens Factor 5 or Jens Factor HC. A temperature of 4C with no wind constitutes early summer here. Perhaps it could be seasonally adjusted? And points should be given for riding through ice and slush. In any event, I appear to have an impressive Jens Factor as my coldest ride this season was with a temperature of -22C and a sustained windspeed of 30 km/h.
