So, I have searched some of my questions, and got a good idea on what I want/need. But I want some direct responses and opinions.
I want to start commuting. We don't get snow here (Alabama) but we will get ice every once in a while (max 5 times during winter) and it rains quite often. I do plan on commuting as often as possible to school. (3 miles) But, I have a car and I am going to be a "fair weather" commuter so that makes it a little easier.
Now things I think I need:
Gloves (my fingers were FREEZING today)
Insulating pants (underwear)
Is there any reason to buy any of these things from a "biking" type store? Is there anything else that I need?
