    My commute one way is 9 miles. With the temps in the 20's, I wear
    HEAD; helmet cover, fleece head cover(performancebike.com) WICKERS balaclava, Visorgogs
    TORSO; ShowersPass rainjacket, SportHill Traveller jacket
    LEGS; Workpants w/ leg warmers, aftn ride home- SportHill 3SP pants
    HANDS; Mittens w/ glove liner
    FEET; LL Bean Snow Sneakers w/ Performance toesties, Wool Hiking socks
    In the teens I may double-up the gloves and socks. And switch to Fleece cycling pants w/ windblocker
    In the single digits I break out the snowpants and add a fleece vest
    I've recently added the fleece hat from Performance, which really made a difference.
    Also, Cabela's has excellent cold weather gear at reasonable prices. Can you say Iditarod. A lot of the mushers outfit themselves with Cabela's. http://www.cabelas.com/cabelas/en/te...equestid=50298

    I got a Duofold Insulayer thermal shirt today at TJMax for $3! Inner layer is polyester. Outer layer is 45% merino wool/55% poly. Sounds like a steal for that price. I am in Ohio and they had several of them available if anyone is interested. Mostly size small, but fit more like a medium.

    20F this morning when I rode to work. I believe that's a personal low temp record! I wore:

    polyester long sleeve base layer
    long sleeve hooded jersey
    fleece + WindPro winter cycling jacket
    fleece-lined tights
    cycling shorts
    wool socks
    sneakers (I had taken my Speedplays off the bike & packed them in my suitcase last night; at this time tomorrow I will be riding in >75 desert sun!)
    helmet
    glasses

    I was perfectly comfortable for my 11 mile commute. Except for my face, which I nearly froze off. My breath was condensing so rapidly that my beard was covered with icicles after only 2 or 3 miles. (And I know I don't drool that much!)

    Also, if I'd had to ride much further than 11 miles I think my toes would've been hurting.

    24 Degrees, 15-25 mph wind gusts with 10mph sustained winds.

    Craft windproof boxers
    Voler Knee warmers
    Craft Curve Tights
    Voler Bibs
    Normal cotton socks
    PI Amphib booties
    Craft prowarm base L/S layer
    Voler thermal jacket
    Hat
    Winter gloves

    I was good for about an hour and a half, and my toes got pretty cold at about an hour ten. I'll wear wool socks next time.

    mid 30 deg F
    Sunshine to work. Dark as ever riding home.
    Distance 12 miles
    Top - Smartwool t-shirt, Spot wool jersey with time worn "breathing" holes, flannel buttondown
    Bottom - basic tights, Dockers knickers
    Feet - Smartwool cycling socks, casual shoes, toe covers
    Gloves - Louis Garneau something or other
    Head - fleece headband, helmet

    Toes were a little chilly this morning. I think it may have been in the upper 20's. Spring is almost here and I can hardly wait. Getting sick of putting on/taking off so many layers so often.

    The first decision you need to make is when to start wearing tights. Keeping the knees covered and warm is the first thing you need to do in the fall and the last one in the spring. I will start wearing knicker length shorts at around 60 degrees F.

    That decision was made today; first day since May when I couldn't just throw on a short-sleeved jersey & shorts & be done!

    51 F when I left this morning:

    - sleeveless lightweight Pearl Izumi base layer
    - long-sleeved lightweight jersey
    - tights
    - those dorky Andiamo padded briefs
    - wool socks
    - regular fingerless summer gloves

    I'll probably be too hot on the way home.

    in a strange way ...

    In a strange way temps around freezing seem the most difficult, maybe 30-40F. All I have to do is crack a sweat and boy do I get chilled. It's been in the high 40s in the morning.
    Pearl Izumi kickers
    darn tough wool socks
    wool long sleeve jersey
    nylon vest
    helmet liner
    thin long sleeve gloves
    The ride home is always too warm but the afternoon is so nice I don't care, I just sweat a bucket.

    I leave the house in the afternoon (1 p.m. to 2 p.m.) so it's fairly warm then, but my commute home is 11 p.m. at the earliest . . . so I've got a variety of factors to deal with. I live in Portland, so the question is: is it rainy and warm(ish) or rainy and cold(ish)?
    Today was lower 40s and dry when I left so:
    Smartwool NTS longsleeve
    Old beat up, but mended with love merino pullover from Target
    Dickies
    Long athletic socks
    Black Addidas shelltoes
    North Face jeep hat

    When I got off tonight it was just under 40, windy and dry, so:
    Smartwool NTS longsleeve
    Same Target merino pullover
    Descente Velom jacket
    Fox Incline gloves
    Dickies
    Long athletic socks
    Addidas shelltoes
    North Face jeep hat

    When it's rainy out I've got a Sierra Designs "Hurricane" parka and pant set that I'll bust out, but they don't breathe as well (because they're completely waterproof, see?) and they get me a little clammy.
    You bet your a** they come out in those week long Portland drizzles though.

    So I left this morning and it was 38, I don't have tights(yet). I wore a hoodie with under armour cold gear underneath and sweat pants. I was warm, but not aerodynamic at all, I felt like a parachute!!!! I live in Toledo Ohio and commute to Bowling Greeen, with horrible wind and extreme cold in winter. I think 30 and above will be my limit this year. My commute is 23 miles, so i'm not trying to die anytime soon. but my purpose for writing is to a.)subscribe to this forum and b) ask what everyone enjoys wearing in the winter. (30 and above) www.icebike.com recommends 100 weight polartech power stretch. I like the price, but I really need some more convincing from the public to be pushed in that direction. If not those than what do people ride here in the winter. I'm originally from Texas, so yeah winter and I are not friends!!!!!

    49F/9C, dry and clear with a slight breeze from the south.

    I wore a merino (SmartWool) baselayer, l/s jersey, knickers, and glove liners. The merino baselayer was overkill and I ended up zipping down my jersey halfway through. Otherwise, it was perfect. But if it gets any cooler, I might have to find my toe covers.

    what are these toe covers you speak of, are they worn inside a shoe?

    No, on the outside. Mine are neoprene and there is a hole on the bottom for the cleat, they just slip over the toes and stay snug there.

    You can get them at any bike shop or online store. Perfect for temps down to freezing.

    weeeeeeeee!!!!!
    first time this year, i had to actually pull out my face mask and use it.

    it was fun

    Softshell jacket + jeans + regular socks + waterproof shoes (it was raining/snowing) + face mask

    and the usual bike gear gloves + helmet + stereo BT headset which also doubles as my ear warmer

    I believe mid to high 30s; did my morning ride (20 miles).
    toe booties, 2 pair or wool socks, long mid tights, 2 duofold layers, heavy jersey, wind jacket, balaclava, full finger gloves with liner.
    my fingers were hurting so much i had to stop; my left foot was completely frozen till i got home.
