To compliment the "winter clothing guide" sticky I thought it would be good to build a "database" thread that simply says, I wore X today at Y temperature. It might also be good to note sky and wind conditions as well as duration of ride.
This would be a very handy reference for beginners as well as veterans. Please keep your replies strictly to the requested information. Simply reply with what you wore, and what the conditions were. DO NOT insert other rhetoric about your ride today, or your new tires, or lights or any of that jazz. This is simply what you wore in what conditions.
Today I wore:
Helmet, Ear band, Lightweight Balaclava
Performance Winter Cycling Jersey, Lightweight unlined vest, Performance Gore Tex Cycling jacket.
Nashbar Epic Cycling shorts, Foxwear Powershield tights.
Defeet midweight Merino Wool socks, Heavy pair of wool socks from Walmart.
For shoes I wore a pair of size 12 Wolverine, Thinsulate hiking boots. (I normally wear a size 11. Bigger sizes allow for warmer feet.)
LIghtweight fleece gloves from Target, Heavy weight Thinsulate convertible mittens from Walmart.
22 F, North wind 10 mph. Started out in the dark. After sunrise sky was clear. Rode 1 hour 32 minutes. (20 miles)
Removed vest 3 miles into ride. Too hot.
