What's the temp there? I refuse to ride when it's colder than about -10F air temp. I don't worry much about the wind chill as it seems there's always a wind in my face when riding.

Looks like you did a good job of keeping most of your flesh covered - I've found that to be one of the big secrets to comfortable winter commutes.

Same here. Since I have a car I use it when it is that cold. Can still ride a bike but it is getting complicated and I loose my motivation. Maybe just a quick ride with the dog.

It was about 20f here. Wind was whipping pretty good for most of the day. I lived in Nebraska for a longtime so I am well versed in keeping myself warm in extreme temps.

Nice thing about this are is the fact that it might get cold on one day and even a little snow.....but it's usually gone the next day. Rarely does it hang around for long.
