Not trying to get too personal here, but when it's cold and you are cycling, what do you wear under the outer stuff?
I want to try, again, to ride during the winter months. Thus far, I haven't been really successful at this particular endeavor.
I was at a local outfitter/bike place here in Northwest Ark. to get some cycling shoes , and I decided to look at base layer apparel. One of the employees directed me to the hiking/backpacking area where they have Marmot Infinity Silk Weight and Mid Weight base layer tops and bottoms. The top part of me is the part that usually suffers the most. I talked to an employee, and she said she uses the silk weight stuff for backpacking because the mid weight is too hot. So now I'm thinking of the silk weight top, a long sleeve jersey, and a wind jacket. I would like to be able to ride in the 30's, 40's, and 50's. I know that's not really cold to some of you, but I'm fairly sensitive to cold weather. I have a balaclava, which does fairly well at keeping the brain housing group warm enough to function as designed. My legs usually do well with leg warmers. I thought for cooler weather, I might get some non-chamois tights to go over the leg warmers.
