    Conditions: 24F cloudy. 21-28MPH winds from the west.

    Head: EMS Schoeller Alterra Beanie

    Torso: cotton T under wool sweater under EMS Gunk Softshell (Schoeller WB-400)

    Hands: EMS Gore Windstopper fleece gloves

    Legs: Khakis

    Feet: poly-blend socks and limited edition Vans Slayer old schools.

    Goal: Get home from work, after working 16 hours. 3 miles of varying degrees of uphill.

    Summary. Had to fight the wind, first from my left and then head on. My earlobes got a little cold since my beanie was rising up. I kicked the wind's ass despite running a fixed gear at 46x16. My face, earlobes and toes were a little chilly when I arrived home, but I was warm and dry otherwise. A small victory I will not soon forget.

    Torso:ShowersPass Rain Jacket err...cotton pullover
    Hands: Axo Mountain gloves
    Legs: Err Flare jeans

    Today @ 14 F (with a whiteout) I wore:

    Thermal underwear (top and bottom) and wool socks
    Jeans, a long-sleve shirt and some worn-out sneakers
    Waterproof breathable jacket, balaclava, clear double-lens goggles, helmet with waterproof cover, and heavy mittens.

    I enjoyed a trip to the local laundrymat (3 - 4 miles). Did some laundry. Freaked out a few people (They couldn't believe I was riding a bike in the snow). Then went home.
    I could have worn my waterproof pants but it was too cold for the snow to melt. I just brushed it off at the end of a ride.

    The thermals seem to make the difference.

    .Today I wore:

    Big mistake today

    Head:

    Lava Wool head and face mask

    Helmet
    Marker ski helmet (that was the mistake)

    Torso

    Solcace wicking shirt with Gor-tex shell

    Legs

    Bike shorts with nylon wind pants

    Feet.

    MTB shoes/MTB with wool socks.


    Hands

    MSR insulated/wind resistant gloves.

    Conditions

    On the way in 10 degrees F with a head wind out of the south about 12mph. On the way home, I had temps in the low 30F. Wind out of the south. That should have been my first warning of warm temps. (South winds bring warm temps)

    Notes: Always check your forecast out before leaving home!

    On the way in I was nice and warm. On the way home I was way to warm. Because of the ski helmet

    "Let us hope our weapons are never needed --but do not forget what the common people knew when they demanded the Bill of Rights: An armed citizenry is the first defense, the best defense, and the final defense against tyranny. If guns are outlawed, only the government will have guns. Only the police, the secret police, the military, the hired servants of our rulers. Only the government -- and a few outlaws. I intend to be among the outlaws" - Edward Abbey

    Conditions: 25 F; Winds 0-15 mph ; Windchill 20 F; Roads Soft Snow/Packed/slushy/Ice.

    Head: Gortex Helmet cover; Neoprene headband; Ski goggles; Fleece lined nose cover (don't know what you call it)

    Torso: 1st layer Sporthill longsleeve 60-40F shirt; 2nd Layer Fleece; 3rd Layer Gortex Shell

    Hands: REI Vertigo Gloves (w/o Liner)

    Legs: 1st layer Thin breathable Wool Thermals; 2nd Layer wind proof lycra; 3rd Layer Gortex shell (2 ply)

    Feet: Ankle hi wool hiking socks; Merrell Chameleon II XCR Gortex Shoes

    Goals: Walmarts for a box of contacts (12 miles)

    There is no coasting with snow and studded tires. Overheated quickly due to the extra effort needed to pedal thru the stuff. Removed 2nd layer on torso, and 1st layer for legs. Felt much better afterwards. I actually had to take it easy (=slower) so that I did not sweat too much. Sweating can become a bad thing when out at these temps.

    I'm changing it up a bit

    Yesterday I wore

    Conditions -21 Celsius (real cold in F), with some wind (variable direction)

    Head: Sirius windproof skullcap (with integrated earmuffs)

    Face: Sirius neoprene face mask (sweaty but worth it)

    Eyes: nothing (bad idea, eyelashes kept on getting stuck!)

    Torso: Stanfields thermal undershirt, Periodic table T shirt, long sleeved collar shirt, Polartec 200 fleece from MEC, Supermycroft 2 windbreaker from MEC

    Legs, etc: MEC cycling underwear, MEC quick dry boot-top long johns, Levis 501's

    Feet: Wigwam super hiking wool socks, Magnum security boots

    Hands: MEC nanu lobster gloves

    THe commute is 12 km long, on mixed road, some hardpack snow, loose snow and ice, and clear pathway with icy patches.

    It was pretty cold, and I had to stop for a few minutes in a coffee shop, but my time was good.

    Today I wore:

    Head:

    Helmet, Light weight balaclava, with midweight balaclava over top. Ear band over ears and one also worn inverted over nose, mouth.

    Wore Visorgogs over eyes. Thought i needed them because of strong wind and snow. WRONG!!! They were nice until I heated up and they fogged badly. I couldn't see. Had to remove them 15 minutes into ride. I am so glad i have contacts this season. So much nicer to deal with covering the face. No fogging to worry about.

    Torso

    Underarmour base layer Performance Winter Cycling Jersey, Lightweight unlined vest. Gore Tex Cycling jacket.

    Legs

    Nashbar Epic Cycling shorts, Foxwear powershield tights. AMPK2 midweight tights.

    Feet.

    Heavyweight Wool socks X 2,LIght cycling socks X 1, Woverine Thinsulate Hiking Boots.


    Hands

    Lightweight Fleece gloves Heavyweight Thinsulate Convertible mittens/gloves.


    Conditions

    8 F. 20 mph NOrth wind. Heavy Snow. Poor visiblity.


    Notes:

    Still can't tolerate midweight balaclava. Thing is just too hot this year for some reason. 45 minutes into ride, i removed midweight balaclava and put just the lightweight and earbands on.



    Rode 1 hr 35 minutes.

    15 miles. Very slow going in wind and snow.
