    what clothes to wear for me

    Hi,

    Getting ready for winter. ABout 5 degrees celcius minimum but VERY WINDY!

    I am considering some long johns and undershirt from a camping store, shirt and pants and a windbreaker.

    THinking a balaclava for the wind.

    How does that sound? Are the long johns and undershirt appropriate for riding?

    what else can you recommend

    Close fitting jogging tights (tracksters) are useful at cool temps.
    Balaclavas are for really cold conditions. A neck-tube (headover or buff) is useful and can be pulled up over the ears if the temp drops.
    Long-sleeved hiking jerseys are excellent for winter riding.
    Winter windbreakers need to be heavier duty than 3-season ones. I use the huff test, huffing through the material. I look for material which can resist my breath but does let it pass at high pressure.
    Pertex is a useful material for cycling windproofs. Pertex over-pants are useful when the temp drops to near 0C. They are light and easy to carry and dry in minutes.
