Putting it away for another winter

Well all my winter gear is cleaned folded and put away for anther year. Noticed that I'll need new shorts, the ones I wear under my tights now have huge holes in them. I'll need a new set of gloves, the ones I've worn are 4 years old, that says something about the glove, I just wish I'd known when I bought them cause I would have bought a couple pair.

See ya'll in the fall.

Wow, you're confident!

I am not putting my winter riding clothes and gear away until the end of May- we sometimes even get snow in may here in Chicago, unfortunately...

Its not over till the fat lady counts her chickens.
My cool weather gear stays on till it gets warm, no matter what time of the year it is.
I do empathise with your glove problem. My favourite cool/temperate weather glove is out of production, and all I can get are cold weather ones. I MUST by 2 of anything I like.

I'll be getting my cool weather gear out later tonight so it's ready for an early ride tomorrow. It's just started to cool off over the last few days here. Winter is still ahead of me.

My winter gear stays out all year around!

Of course my winter gear is just more of my summer gear - it's all about layers.
