    Cycling Ninja Club - Show me your cold riding setup

    Here I go first - Todays 19 farenheit ride - My coldest yet - colder to go!


    1st upper layers - capilene underwear + dry fit long sleeve.
    1st lower layers - capilene underwear + lycra shorts (friction) + thin, good quality ski socks + thicker, elastic fitting hiking socks.



    The whole thing spread out over the bed.


    10 dollar thinsulate gloves (Head ... or whatever brand)
    Flat ear muffs + Silk ski mask + Ski hat + some scarf + clear goggles


    300 weight polar (columbia) with some windstopping fabric inside.
    Snug, warm fleece pants from target (I think they call them activity pants ...) very warm
    High visibility vest for being a "visible" ninja.

    I was planning another layer with a track suit jacket, but it was too warm for 19F!!! The implication of that is I do have enough clothing to go UNDER 19F! YAY!!


    Dorky ... yes
    Visible ... Yes
    Comfortable ... yes
    Sweat free? .... depends how fast are you going. I dont like "wind stop" tech unless I am skiiing ...

    I like the fact that many of my ski gear can be used for biking ...

    Come on ... show me your ninja setup!

    Your are hardcore man! A salute to you. BTW, I think you look more like a terrorist than a Ninja. Sorry.

    I have a similar setup, only my goggles are from the hardware store, and most of my gear isn't so posh. Still, I wear similar amounts and layers of clothing. I wear combat boots and wool hiking socks rather than clipless cycling shoes, however.

    My normal gear is:

    1 pair Underarmour tights
    1 pair corduroy pants
    1 underarmour turtleneck
    1 wool sweater
    1 lightweight waterproof shell jacket
    1 fleece earband
    1 lightweight knit balaclava thingy
    1 pair hardware store woodshop goggles
    1 pair heavyweight wool socks
    1 pair combat boots
    1 pair full finger cycling gloves
    1 Chrome "messenger" bag

    If it is colder, I can add other layers. I have a couple of fleece pullovers or other sweaters of varying weights. I'm probably going to buy some ski pants I found for cheap at a thrift shop, and I have a pair of Sugoi SubZero tights and a much beefier pair of gloves and a thicker face mask thingy.

    I don't have a picture of my gear all laid out, but I do have a ridiculous picture of myself in my light mask, googles, and helmet.


    I was running all around the house last Saturday with this gear on, yelling "Yeaaargh!" and frightening the cats and making my husband think I'd lost the better part of my mind.
    Wheeeee!

    The glasses behind the goggles are surreal, a nice touch.

    Without the glasses, I would not make it to work alive. I'm effectively blind without them.

    I'll be posting mine soon, but ninja setup doesn't come out for 19f (-7c). I need 5 to 10c colder before full face and 300 weight polartec. Guess it comes from working in the arctic in feb. where the daytime highs are -40c.

    I was determined to ride today and yesterday, it's below 40 deg F here and the windchill is pretty fierce, also today it rained. I rode with a tshirt, thick sweatshirt, coolmax cap, helmet, jeans cuffed in wool socks and sneakers. It was freaking COOOLD but I made it a little over half an hour each day for my workout. I'll definitely be puting on a rain layer and hooking up a balaclava you folks are wearing, they look warm.

    Also my current ride is a Specialized Ninja, but she's a big funny looking ninja so it's hard for her to be invisible.

    True ninjas scoff at such protection! A t-shirt and shorts would be far more ninjaesque. You guys look way more like cyborg terrorist exterminators, or something equivalent.
    I'd show you a picture of my TRUE ninja setup, but my fingers don't work for half an hour after I get off the bike....

    The 2 pair of socks make my feet BOIL. I really appreciate ventilation. It was a tad chilly at first, but as soon as I started moving, my feet felt nice and toasty.

    I do have unusually warm feet, and ventilation is a must. I wear thick sandals with thick socks in winter, providing is dry.
