I seen people riding this week, in the morning, with cycle shorts, and bare knees. Like wtf. Id be a frozen popsicle with bare knees in these temps.
Friday is supposed to be coldest commute day. My toes are the only part I cant keep warm.
Mec leg warmers, mec windproof tights and the lower half is toasty (then i can wear either the leg warmers or the tights on way home depending on temp). Ibex neve jacket for the dry cold with a couple thin base layers and i can almost imagine cycling in the east......no wait i cant heh. I dont know how those poor buggers live in that. Us pnw'rs damn near go crazy when we see freezing.
Speakign of which, my water froze on my trip to work today, wtf this is the west coast, thats not supposed to happen !
