People ask "you rode in this cold?"

We really don't get extremely cold temps here but it can get really cold a few days in the winter. Now early this week it was in the mid 20's in the morning pretty cold by Puget sound lowland temps. I had several people say man its too cold to ride a bicycle in this. My reply is always along the lines of. " I know thousands of people that ski and ride snowmobiles in a lot colder temps than this, whats so odd about riding a bicycle in the cold?" That will usually get an answer something along the lines of wearing warm clothing and I'm like DUH I don't ride in shorts and a t-shirt
