My go to for cold weather is a very good wind breaker and a base layer, sometimes with a mid layer, depending on the weather and what I'll be doing. If I'm going for a long, steady distance (zone 2) ride, I'll wear a cashmere sweater too. If it's going to be race pace for an hour, just a base layer.

Here's a picture of me skiing up Ambilis Mountain in a base layer and wind breaker. It was 13 F.
