If lower 50s are the high tempsó i.e. if itís in the 40s at the start of the rideó I use thermal bib shorts. On top, itís either the aforementioned thermal arm warmers with summer jersey or a long sleeved base layer under summer jersey with thermal bib shorts.

I really like thermal bib shorts and tights, because that extra warmth across the lower belly and waist really does a lot to keep me warm and comfortable.
Hence, thermal bib knickers.
