Hello MN bikers, my feet are still cold.
Conditions: I'm new to winter biking. 30 minute test ride in 8F. I would have gone longer but my feet were becoming the issue. I am going to have to bite the bullet and buy some overshoes or dedicated footwear. I might try some light hikers before buying something new but it does help to have the right tool for the job. 2nd layer fleece was too heavy, I was getting too warm in the torso.
Head: helmet, ski goggles, windproof fleece balaclava
Torso: capilene long sleeve crew, no-name brand lightweight fleece pullover, canari shell
Legs: capilene boxers (love these), Pearl Izumi tights, biking shorts, Hind rain pants
Feet: poly liner socks, smartwool hiking socks, leather street shoes (mistake)
Hands: poly liners, Patagonia mittens
