    I'd go short sleeves with another layer underneath. And wear just my other warm weather stuff.

    Actually, I think there was a day in early January where is was in the mid-60's. Took a 2 hour lunch and a 1.5 hour ride. Beautiful.

    Get a bicycle. You will certainly not regret it, if you live.

    Correct. I don't think I've ridden in anything below 35.

    I'd take your jacket, flasher & headlamp...it'll be dark by the time you let strangers on the internet decide how you should dress yourself to go on a bike ride.

    Long sleeve. Long tights too. Then again, if it's under 70 degrees i'm bundling up. Low body fat FTL.

    I'm usually riding near bodies of water when I go out, so even though it's 60's here as well, the cool air coming off of the water convinces me to wear long sleeves and leg warmers. But neither are heavy, so I won't overheat.

    You just have to HTFU. I used to be like that, and have very little body fat, too. Waking up at 5am to ride to work in 40 degree weather now has me shedding everything at 60.

    If you are the type that happens to have soem women's leggings lying around. Not that there is anything wrong with that.

    Why is this your first time on a bicycle since October? Have you been injured in some way and healing has taken that long?

    If you ride through the winter, as the temperatures warm up you just remove layers.

    If it ever hits 60 degrees here, I'll be down to a long-sleeved top and light jacket.

    Some rain in Spain at the Vuelta, and temps in the mid-50's. Mainly short sleeves with arm warmers, or long sleeve base layers.
