what to wear, what to wear

Yesterday I got it right but as spring temps change it's a constant last minute decision each time out. I thought my arms were going to be too cold especially when the computer said my starting temp was 43 degrees. It felt warmer than that so I went with my gut. When I finished the computer said 50 degrees and my hunch for what to wear worked out. I got some new vest like base layer shirts for under my jersey. The other day I also wore one over my fleece base but under the rain jacket. They provide just enough additional core temp retention to make a difference and come in a variety of colors. I'm looking forward to more experimentation with them. I thought my pants would be too much, but nope, they were just right. Glad to be getting my money's worth out of them.

43 degrees (start)
50 degrees (finish)
