    If your wanting to go cheap...that is inexpensive, I recommend using an old pair of cotton socks over your shoes. They serve the same purpose as "booties" or shoe covers at a fraction of the cost. I've been using the same pair of old black cotton dress socks all season, since november, and they have held up pretty well. If you have clipless pdals, just cut a hole for your cleats. A $3 "ski mask" from Wal-mart will do for your face and a nice pair of Trek 3-season gloves should do for your hands. With this route you'll be nice and warm and have spent about $25 including tax. If you want the trendy stuff, the lobster gloves are about $60, a good baclava is about $20 and some shoe covers run from about $20 to $70. I usually ride in weather from 0 to 35 this time of the year with a 7 mile commute one way. This stuff works for me. I did break down and buy a baclava however, just due to the fit.

    Errrrrrrrr....yeah. I live in Kansas. It snows in Kansas. It gets up to 110 F in the Summer and below zero in the winter. Sometimes in the same week.
