Now it is starting to get colder I think my bike is running crisper. Is it my imagination or am I just savoring the last rides for the season?

Density altitude is a thing, so it's probably not your imagination.

In short (for a given altitude on a given day), colder air = greater density, which means more O2, which means more fuel to compensate, which will result in increased power. Think of it as a free environmental turbo/intercooler, since ultimately, that's what those devices seek to create (lower density altitude). :wink2:
