No commuting this week [truck plant layoff] so I went out for a hour and a half ride on three bike paths plus city streets.Rode down to Lake Ontario shoreline and back 25k's total. Only problem was cold toe tips. I had thin cannondale socks , thermal socks, summer mtb shoes, and descent neoprene booties.
It was -11 windchill -18c. and the time just flew by and I was late picking up my boys from school. I made home made shoe covers out of a pair of thermal socks and feet from a pair of my wife's tights with cutouts for cleats and will try them. Hope that will help or I'll get a thin pair of poly socks,thin poly gloves
work great. I used arm warmers made out of same tights and wore them over louis garneau drytex 300 base layer under louis garneau jacket,with 12 dollar thinsulate gloves.
