Temps got down to 30F for my ride in this morning. Head, face, upper body were all nice and cozy. Two problem areas I had were feet (I didn't use the booties, I guess still in denial about winter coming) and my shorts. I wear regular spandex bike shorts with leg warmers. The leg warmers did fine, but the bike shorts clearly didn't keep my upper thighs warm.
Anyone have recommendations for long pants to go over bike shorts, for temps between 0F and 35F? (It's a long ride, I'm not giving up the bike shorts, and I don't want to start any arguments over bike shorts versus regular shorts.) Also, any recommendations for SPD compatible winter boots for same temp range? (I really don't like the over-shoe boots).
