    What should i wear in Jim Thorpe, PA?

    I am going to Jim Thorpe, PA this week to do some good biking hopefully. Anyone been there?....any good trails? This is the weather report, "Thursday: Mix of sun and clouds. Highs in the upper 60s and lows in the upper 40s." This is my first time biking in the fall. What do u guys think will be something good and warm and comfortable to wear without being too hot or cold.

    Usually, I wear my normal clothing for the temp range you mentioned. After about 15 mins, I'm sweating regardless of the temps out. In cooler weather, I take a thin windbreaker that is light enough to tuck into my jersey pocket, or stuffed in my camelback. That way, when I stop, I throw it on and it keeps me from getting a chill.

    When it cold! I'm from FL, so that's anything under 40 F. I wear my BMX gear. Long sleeve jersey and my motorcross pants. I have a pair of Answer BMX protective race pants that are awesome in cold weather. If it's really really cold. I wear long leggings under my BMX pants.
