Compared to a lot of folks on this forum, I have a short commute. Its just about 3.5 miles each way. The most challenging aspect of my daily commute is the weather. I really don't have appropriate clothes or shoes for bad weather.
I've been reading on forums about all the types of layers for winter cycling and I'm trying to figure out what works best as an underlayer (or overlayer) to normal clothes. I want to be able to peel off a few top layers and sit at my desk (casual office environment). No shower at the office, i would not be able to change when I get there.
Also, how many sets of these clothes do I need? Do they need to be washed after every use? My ride isn't very intense and I'm not trying to spend too much money, but I also don't want to stink.
Any input appreciated.
