    Conditions:
    -20, some wind

    Legs:
    Bike shorts, with Ibex guide pants over

    Torso:
    Wool baselayer, wool sweater, light fleece, softshell jacket

    Feet:
    Smartwool mountaineering socks, Lacross pac boots

    Hands:
    thin polypro liner gloves, MEC Goretex/fleece-lined mitts

    HeadL
    Wool hat, wool gaitor, helmet, oakleys


    Most of me felt relatively ok. One problem was the gaitor wasn't high enough to cover mouth and cheeks, and my face was getting very cold, as was my forehead from the wind. Felt like I had to work a lot harder breathing in the cold air, and had to stop at one point cuz I started feeling faint! After a few minutes, that subsided, and I kept going, a little slower though!

    -0c to -10c

    Face: Light cotton balaclava; helmet; and if its too windy or sunny, goggles.

    Torso: Cotton undershirt (wear these everyday of the year, except when I use a rash guard); cotton t-shirt; wind breaker/rain jacket.

    Legs: Some thermal merino wool tights; cotton shorts; wool leg warmers; wind breaker pants.

    Feet: Just wool socks and shimano cycling shoes.

    Hands: acrylic gloves with fleece lining.

    Bellow -10 I usually use a thicker wool/cotton lined face mask, thicker gloves, and maybe a extra pair of shorts.

    Last night about 5F, light breeze.

    5 mile round trip to bar for pub quiz.

    Torso: T-shirt, Wool sweater, Carhartt style jacket.
    Face: Nada.
    Head: Carhartt hat, helmet with vents taped up.
    Legs: Flannel lined jeans.
    Feet: Leather shoes, gym socks.
    Hands: Waterproof mitts w/o liners.

    Think I have finally acclimated to winter. Bundle up a bit when I'm not just running errands around town and actually spending more than 15 minutes on the bike at a time.

    shopping trip this afternoon at 55F:
    Feet: Regular socks, trainers
    Legs: Shorts (65% ploy, 35% cotton)
    torso: thin polo shirt
    I sweated under my back pack, which made me chilly when I took the thing off. My arms were cold, so a long sleeved shirt would have been better. I took off my jumper before heading out, because I thought I'd get too hot.
    Rest of the day: Temperatures were varying between 43 and 52. I wore a hoodie over my shirt, and in the morning (43) I wore full finger gloves, in addition to the above. The hoodie was warm after a mile or so at 52 degrees.

    Guess I'd just be gloating if I listed what I wore on yesterday's ride
    Gorgeous >65°F sunny windless day

    I'll be back in layered fleece & booties for tomorrow's ride though.

    Conditions

    15F, -6C. Very light breeze.

    Head

    helmet w/ cover, ear band, and a neck warmer.

    Torso

    Too many layers, 1st layer LG thermal, 2nd poly long sleeve, Adidas golf short sleeve wind breaker, and a long sleeve Gortex jacket. Very warm indeed.

    Legs

    Winter tights with cycle shorts under.

    Feet

    Wool blend socks, poly liners, cycling shoes, and Gortex booties.

    Hands

    Down mitts with leather shell, (warm).

    This is my first ride into work this year and I did over do it but I would rather strip off layers then freeze. For the trip home I have a lighter pair of lobster mitts. The weatherman predicts +5 C for my ride home.

    43 degrees, winds gusting 20 - 35 mph, with rain ranging from drizzle to downpour. It may be late April, but the weather made me feel like it was later winter or early spring. I'm not sure what the wind chill was, but it was bad enough to keep most everyone else in.

    Head
    Bell Influx helmet and safety glasses.

    Torso
    Performance Illuminite jacket over 2 midweight baselayers and a Champion C9 shortsleeved shirt.

    Legs
    UA compression shorts and Novara tights.

    Feet
    Wool socks and the "water resistant" shoes my GF gave me this Christmas for riding in the wet.

    Hands
    Old ski gloves.

    I rode through the coldest wetest weather I've ever rode in Saturday night, and got wet (except for under the jacket) but stayed warm and comfortable. The trip was only 5 miles, but it wasn't that bad since my gear helped me deal with the conditions.

    33F:
    Normal team kit (shorts and jersey) as base layer
    Pear Izumi amfib tight (wind barrier on leg)
    Normal cycling socks
    Pearl Izumi Toe warmers
    Two long sleeve thermal jerseys (no wind barrier on torso today)
    Bandanna over ears and head
    Two pairs of $1 dime store stretchey gloves

    Result:

    1: Pretty happy with the torso (could have gone another 5-10 degrees before a wind barrier (today was an experiment as I usually am in my vest by now with fewer layers up top)
    2: Legs were great, maybe even a bit too warm as they were slightly clamy when I peeled off the tight.
    3: The Reaer of my ankle got cold being out of the tight and only covered by a single sock. May be time to move to warmer socks.
    4: Toes were just fine (love the toe warmers with a good shoe)
    5: Hands were suprisingly just fine but probably near the lower limit of the dime store glove method.

    It was 54F this morning and I couldn't find one of my kneewarmers so I wore my knickers for the first time this season.

    A little sweaty by the time I got to work, but I'd rather keep my knees too warm than too cold.

    41 degrees with 15mph (cold) wind.

    Starter brand long-sleeve spandex base layer
    Louis Garneau long sleeve jersey (not very thick)
    Performance wind vest
    Performance short bibs
    Adidas leg warmers
    Acrylic socks (tucked into warmers)

    No beanie or headgear (except helmet), regular cycling shoes, no gloves (forgot them). My hands weren't too cold, and the acrylic socks did a great job of keeping my feet dry and warm. I was listening to my iPod which protected my inner ear from the wind, and it was great. Face, head and ears weren't very cold.

    conditions: 40degF, 0-10mph wind, consistent drizzling rain

    ride: 8 hour courier day

    head: thick cotton beanie, helmet

    core: cotton beater, thin long sleeved T, short ski jacket (pit vents open)

    hands: thin cut-off ride gloves, always a sweat bracelet to wipe nose!

    legs: off brand under armour, canvas military fatigues sprayed several weeks and several rains ago with cheap waterproofing

    feet: cotton ankle socks, mtb shoes

    my toes and fingers went cold at a few moments of the day, particularly when standing waiting outside. everything was soaked, but i never felt the wet on my body, only feet and hands. it's hard to stay dry riding 3 inches from cars and semis all day! tomorrow it'll be the same weather, only a few degrees colder. i'll move to smartwool socks. and i'll carry warm gloves for non-riding times.
