Silly question but here we go. Temp is 3-12C here on average. Expect 5C in a mountain. So basically i am wondering what on earth to wear for winter riding. So far i ve been wearing a wicked tshirt for base, a fleece on top and then a windstoper lightweight jacket. My problem is what to wear below the waist. Up to now i used cotton track/running long legged trousers and they suck bigtime....they get dirty easily...1ride and then washing machine. They dont have any kind of wind/rain stopping property and they are dangerous coz they get tackled with my chainrings. I got a silly looking pair of long legged tights but i dislike wearing it. So what are my options? A long legged wind/water repellant pair of trousers bike specific? or maybe shorts and knee/shin armor to warm the legs?
