    Conditions: 8F, Winds out of the north at around 5 - 10 MPH, Sunny

    Head: Smart Wool Balaclava, Toque over that, Helmet over that.
    Mid Section: 2 base layers, Some kind of mock turtle neck, PI Elite Jacket.
    Legs: My Corona PJ Bottoms that my kids gave me for Christmas last year and a pair of wind breaker pants over that.
    Hands: Glove liners and then my XXL PI gloves. Also threw in some chemical warmers. (XXL allows for lots of room in there to move my fingers around)
    Feet: Smart wool socks, shoes, toe covers and then booties.

    This temp is about as low as I go. My commute is 12 miles takes about 45-50 minutes and by the time I got in my toes were the only things that were suffering. Everything else was OK. Didn't need the chemical warmers. I have GOT to figure out the cold toe issue.

    Five mile commute in Portland, Maine: 9*F, wind 10-15 MPH from north, wind chill -8*F.



    Polartec fleece "headsokz" covering, Army surplus "mickey mouse" boots, mittens with homemade handwarmers (rice sewn in, heated up in microwave).

    Other: work slacks, flannel shirt over t-shirt, covered with windbreaker. That's all. "If you're comfortable in the first 5 minutes, you're overdressed."

    Conditions in Maplewood, NJ today: 36F and very windy

    We got about 6 inches of snow on the ground on Saturday. It was plowed pretty well, but there are inevitable patches of ice and slush all over.

    Distances, 2 miles each way then 1/4 mile each way.

    I wore wool dress trousers, wool socks, regular sneakers, t-shirt, dress shirt, wool sweater, squall jacket, scarf, safety goggles, deerskin gloves, and helmet. Nothing on my head to keep me warm. My scarf is very unusual. It's 14 feet long, so I wrap it around myself many times.

    I'm just getting used to winter cycling again after having barely done it for years. I can say I was definitely warm enough, though I was scared about the slippery patches. I fared just fine.

    By the way, I find that wool dress trousers are great for outdoor activities. I skiied in them last year, since I forgot to bring my ski pants. The main problem is the risk of ruining a nice pair of trousers. But I get them at Costco for a mere $45 or at rummage sales for $5 or $10. Very comfy, too.

    19F when I left the house at 5:45AM, winds ~8mph. Dark.

    I wore:
    - Early Winters Furnace Shirt polypro baselayer
    - Performance longsleeved/hooded cycling jersey
    - Performance fleece softshell jacket with windproof front panels
    - Pearl Izumi cycling shorts
    - Pearl Izumi Amphib bib tights
    - two pairs of SmartWool socks
    - Answer winter cycling boots
    - Specialized two-part winter cycling gloves (inner liner + outer guantlet-style glove)
    - helmet
    - Optic Nerve Rodango glasses (amber lenses)

    Did 20 miles before work. I was the only cyclist I saw on the road for the entire time I was out!

    This thread is useless without ... locations! Bob Ross, where are you, and how common are cycle-commuters there?

    Yesterday, it was 22F and extremely windy. I wore ... TOO LITTLE! I'm not a cycle-commuter, since I work at home, but I do as many local errands and client visits as possible. I went to my therapist who is about 1.4 miles from home. Normally, it's an easy commute, and normally the cold doesn't bother me, but man oh man. I had my wool trousers on, a dress shirt, a sweater, a gator, safety goggles, gloves, and a helmet. I should have worn something under my trousers, a second sweater, and a balaclava. I have a skull cap for under my helmet but I can't find it, and I don't own a balaclava yet. My goggles didn't work this time, and I had to close one eye and squint the other one because the wind was so strong. Also, the wind was extremely strong on my downhills on the way there, so strong that I had to pedal extremely vigorously DOWNHILL. It was so hard that it was insulting.

    But lessons learned, and I have no regrets.

    I do wonder how I would fare in colder climates. I don't get cold as easily as the average person, but I was really at my limit. I suppose that's mostly because I wasn't properly dressed.

    Wind chill was about 1F.

    Is it as windy in Canada and Minnesota as it is here? I think we had 30 mph gusts.

    Really, "useless"? You don't think 19F, winds ~8mph feels pretty much the same regardless of geographic location? It's not like 19F actually feels colder in Miami FL than it does in Fairbanks AK, it's just that the locals are less accustomed to it.

    But I'm in New York City. Cyclo-commuters are extremely common here. (I wasn't commuting this morning, I was just out riding for fun. But I commute a couple days a week, and usually dress similarly to how I described in my previous post.)

    The temperature and wind speed feel the same, no matter where you are, but putting them in context with what we can expect still helps. If it's 19F in South Carolina, it's different than in Minnesota, because if you're in MN, you're a wimp for complaining about it, but if you're in SC, it means you're a stoic for braving it.

    I meant "useless" hyperbolically, because I was paraphrasing the saying, "this thread is useless without pictures."

    I grew up in Manhattan and still ride there. It's nice that cyclo-commuting is as high as it is lately. There are a lot of ordinary people who don't love bicycles who do it merely because it makes sense. What better way to legitimize cycling is there?

    Today I wore a T-shirt and Blue Jeans, ordinary "jogging" shoes (I DON'T DO TENNIS), lightweight wool socks. Wore light "polar" fleece, as it was a bit gusty today. 65 degrees.
    If you're not living on the edge, you're taking up too much room!

    It's too cold now. We've had two days of temps around 20F and very high winds. I bundle up and walk my dogs. My face hurts almost immediately. I guess I need a balaclava. If I rode a bike, I would be in deep pain.

    Two days ago I wore my snowboard helmet and goggles while mtn biking. Windchill was ~10 below, my ears and eyes were warm and dry. Got a few funny looks, but stayed warmer then ever.

    Hmm, I have ski goggles. Perhaps I should get a ski helmet. How much are they?

    Today the wind is much lighter. The temperature hasn't gone up, but it's tolerable now.

    I don't know how you manage in colder climates than here. I guess whatever your worst weather is will be intolerable, and then the next step or two up from that is tolerable.

    I heard it got down to the 20's F in Florida!

    Rochester NY, ~15 degrees F, 10-15 mph wind, varying route conditions from clear to packed snow to a few inches of powder to a few inches of wet snow. Commute to work: About 3.5 miles.

    Helmet

    Thin balaclava
    - Not even neoprene, just polyester

    Ski goggles
    - Prevents glasses fogging/icing and eyes tearing up

    Ordinary cotton casual T-shirt
    - Whatever shirt I'm wearing to work

    Leather bomber jacket w/ Thinsulate liner
    - Very effective at blocking wind, and the liner keeps me warm

    Canari windproof full-finger gloves
    - Purpose is obvious; thinking about trying to find something warmer

    Dockers khaki pants
    - Whatever pants I'm wearing to work

    Marmot PreCip rain pants
    - Cuts the wind, protects pants from road crud/snow/rain/etc., provides an air layer for a minimal amount of additional insulation

    Ordinary cotton athletic socks

    Columbia Titanium winter hiking boots
    - Windproof, waterproof, Thinsulate liner, warm down to -20 degrees F but comfortable enough to wear indoors all day

    I'm trying to stay warm enough, but not too warm, while minimizing the amount of stuff I have to strip off/change out of. If I were traveling farther, I'd wear a more strategically designed set of layers. Still, I'm thinking I might want to dig out my Under Armor compression pants to wear under my other stuff on the ride in.

    Still in NYC. Commuted to work this morning, 11 miles (each way). 20F with 10mph winds (weather.com said the wind chill factor/"RealFeel" was 14)

    polypro balaklava
    Sahalie polypro mock turtleneck base layer
    Assos 851 jacket
    cycling shorts
    generic "casual fit" fleece tights
    SmartWool socks
    Answer winter cycling boots
    fleece gloves with Wombat-style finger covers
    polyester glove liners
    cycling glasses
    helmet

    My water bottle froze solid, my breath condensed on my beard and formed icycles, and the tip of my nose turned black and fell off when I touched it.

    Okay, I'm kidding about the nose thing. But it was farkin' cold!

    Nort-western Germany, Temperature this morning about 26F, light snowfall, light wind. Distance about 5 miles of hilly terrain (mostly uphill) with frequent stops, duration about 25 minutes.

    Head:
    Cotton balaclava (one that I got from go-kart driving.
    "Thinsulate" (synthetic) beanie
    Generic Polyester scarf

    Torso:
    Cotton T-Shirt
    Cotton button-up shirt (I change at work, and then wear my work clothes on my ride the next day)
    OCK softshell jacket

    Hands:

    Mammut "Thermostretch" gloves
    windproof gloves over those

    Legs:
    Boxers
    Jeans
    wool thingies to pull over my calves

    Feet:
    generic wool socks
    sneakers

    The only part that got a bit cold were my fingers, which is mostly because my outer gloves are a bit too small.
    I realize wearing cotton is not ideal, but for the duration of only 25-30 minutes it's not a problem, I might be a bit wet but it's too short to get cold, especially since the way to work is mostly uphill (though on the way back, I get substantially colder, since it's downhill of course). Also my jacket has "pit zips".

    When the temps are in the teens I substitute snowboard pants for Jeans and hiking boots for sneakers, I am probably also wearing three cycling jerseys under the jacket, and possibly a sweater.

    I may have set a personal low temp record Saturday afternoon: 16F at 2:30PM, overcast, winds ~8mph...AccuWeather said the "RealFeel" was 3. I did a 16 mile out&back just to do something on the bike, I was going stir-crazy.

    Ibex short-sleeve merino wool base layer
    Early Winters Furnace Shirt polypro longsleeve baselayer (middle layer?)
    Performance long-sleeve waffle-knit hooded jersey
    Performance fleece jacket w/ windblock front
    Pearl Izumi cycling shorts
    Pearl Izumi Amfib bib tights
    SmartWool sock liners
    SmartWool snowboarding socks
    Answer winter cycling boots
    polyester glove liners
    big-ass Thinsulate-lined winter ski gloves
    Performance polypro balaklava (yes, over the top of the jersey's hood)
    helmet
    glasses

    I added a half-ounce of vodka to my 24 oz. water bottle so it didn't freeze. Fail. Not only did it freeze anyway, but what little water i could suck out of it tasted like vodka! Dumb idea.

    Toronto -4C. Sunny and windy.

    Head
    Ski helmet (has a liner and ear covers)
    sunglasses
    neoprene-fleece face mask and scarf

    Torso
    Wool shortsleeve shirt
    Long sleeve Sporthill zone 3 shirt
    Fleece lined rain jacket

    Legs
    Bike shorts
    Coldweather fleece cycling tights
    Terry's cycling nylon capri pants

    Feet
    wool socks
    -40 winter boots

    Hands
    waterproof thinsulate ski gloves

    How was the ride? I was mostly warm except for my legs. I should have worn my Sporthill zone 3 pants but the pockets on them are terrible. Too small to hold a wallet, keys, and my cellphone. My rain jacket has crummy pockets too so I don't carry anything I'd hate to lose in them. Next time (odds are tomorrow) I'm wearing the Sporthill pants under the Terry's capris because the pockets are roomy and have wonderful zippers on them.

    Future purchases:
    Rain pants. Last week I was caught in the shower and my legs were soaked. At least with all of the space age fabrics on my legs I didn't feel wet or particularly cold. But I think rain pants would be a huge help.

    This morning was 33f with dry roads. The aftn was great. 35f, nice cool weather to ride in. I wear LL Bean Snow Sneakers with toe warmers over them for extra protection. With a good pair of Wool socks they keep my feet nice and toasty down to about 15f. I wear SportHill XC pants with a Showers Pass rainjacket as my outer shell and a SportHill Traveller jacket as a base shell. That keeps me warm to -14f. Although the pockets on the Sporthills, to me, I think they're pretty generous. But I do carry a fanny pack to handle the wallet, etc. Face it. Most cycling pants aren't designed to carry all of the stuff that you mentioned. But for daily riding in Cold temperatures. You can't beat Sport Hill clothing. I use O3 Rainshield pants. Pretty reasonable price and they work.

    Florida native, now a resident of the northern Midwest, went for my first winter ride today temp was mid 20's, very little wind and the roads were relatively clear. Wore bike shorts, long underwear (old pair from my skiiing days), sweat pants, compression shirt, sweatshirt, light goretex jacket, gloves, glasses, and helmet. Went out for about 45 mintues did about 14 miles. I was shocked to find that I was very comfortable with the exception of my feet. I wore regular low rise cotton socks and midway through the ride my feet were freezing. Not sure how much winter gear I will invest in but one thing is for sure, I will buy some better socks! Next time I'll leave the sweatshirt at home also.

    Wear as little cotton as possible. Wool and synthetics are good. Different synthetics breathe to different degrees, so you will have to experiment.

    Nashville, TN area. 27 feels like 16 and 2mph wind. Snowing at 1st but it turned to rain drizzle about 10 minutes in to my 25 mile ride.

    Head:
    Mizuno Breath Thermo Headband
    REI balaclava

    Torso:
    Reebok Cold weather long sleeve compression shirt
    Capo LE jersey
    Capo LE jacket

    Legs:
    Reebok Cold weather compression tights
    Specialized padded shorts
    Cold weather jogging pants (water resistant)

    Feet:
    Specialized cycling shoe
    Smart wool socks
    Cotton socks
    chemical warmer
    Endura boot covers

    Hands:
    defeet gloves
    LG wind/water resistant glove
    chemical warmer

    Body, feet, and head were great. Hand, fingers specifically, got cold enough I had to stop and take off gloves & clinching my chemical warmers tightly, till warm again. The jacket, jersey, and compression shirt was almost too much. I have to figure something out for my feet and hands to keep them warm without chemical warmers. My glove combo is currently crap. Shoe combo with chemical in this temp is fine, but would rather NOT have to use that.

    Anchorage, AK. 30 degrees F this morning, about 34 F coming home this afternoon, winds less than 5 mph.

    Wore the ever present wool beanie and helmet combo, but it was too warm for my sweet dayglo yellow Buff neckwarmer with the reflective stripe (love that thing).

    Midweight Novara cycling gloves, still had sweaty hands.

    Midweight Patagonia poly-blend long-sleeved shirt with an ultrathin dayglo REI windbreaker over that. Had to ditch the windbreaker at about 3 miles, overheated. Switched to a light, non-windproof fleece to let some heat out, instead.

    Padded cycling undies, poly-blend boxers over those, then jeans (trying to look a little normal when I get to school, you know).

    Thin, over-the-calf wool socks and North Face winter hiking boots.

    I can dress for 15 F and lower, or 45 F and higher, comfortably. This in-between nonsense is driving me nuts, though. BRING BACK THE COLD!

    I hate you, El Nino.

    ….I stopped on the OBP next to 161 and took a picture to show you all what I wear when it’s 6 degrees out at 4am.

    We have the Wickers Expedition balaclava from Sierra Trading Post with Uvex Flex seal goggles. These goggles won’t fog up on you with your mouth and nose covered up. The Loki Mittens is what keeps the hands nice and toasty (with a cheap cotton glove liner). And the NEOS Overshoes on the feet to keep the toes warm. And of course, the Showers Pass Century jacket that is about worn out. With a Sporthill Traveller jacket as a base layer. I’ve got my work pants on with the Sporthill XC pants over those with leg warmers. And some excellent Merino Wool hunting socks from Bass Pro Shops. If you want to stay warm and comfortable out in these frigid temperatures then you got to get good gear.
