45F, cloudy. Coldest ride I've ever taken in my life. Seriously.....

Just off the Prospect Park entrance by Coney Island Av.

Before the hill, Grand Army Plaza

Going down. Sorry for missing the hill. Kind of hard to take pictures and pedaling up with one hand

Still on the way down, approaching the lake

nice pix! it's going to be a high of 44 tomorrow when we ride and a low of 25, unfortunately we probably won't see anything higher than 40 since we'll be riding after sunset, I'm going to take some pix of the trail though, my HID should produce enough light for that

Maybe if you donít shave your legs . J/K, I donít shave mine eitherÖ..

I wasn't showing off when i said 45F, I know many ride below 30F or 0C and i myself, never rode in weather cooler then 60F . So this is kind of fulfilling on a personal scale. Everyday is a challenge now. I'm determined to se how low can i go. Hope to ride in show this year. Thanks for comments everyone. I kind of didn't expect for pics to come out the way they did. Thought they'll be all blurry since i wasnít stopping to take them.

man, until I saw those pics I didn't realize how grey everything was today. Still, it wasn't that bad temperature-wise,..got cold later on though. We've already had worse days, let's hope there's not too many more ahead.

good pictures, and looks like you have a nice bike!

I'm a wuss. I stop at snow/ice. I can't be bothered once it starts. Although I might setup snow jumps.

The only thing limiting my riding is my gear. Right now, I can go down to about 25 degrees, but it often gets much colder, and the wind whips up like mad here. I refuse to stop riding.

Did a 25 degree ride here in the Phoenix area last week. I underestimated the temps since it is very rare to get those kind of temps. I was a popsicle after an hour and a half and had minor freezer burn. I have dug out the toe warmers since then and purchased a balaclava.

Cool pics.

It was 15F this morning, windchill down about 0F - fun stuff, especially since there was no snow or ice...

It's pretty nice weather here - jeans and t-shirt weather in the afternoon, jeans and t-shirt with sweater weather in the evening

This is, unfortunately, a break between cold spells - it'll go back to snowing and raining soon.

Yeah, i have a ton of clothes too. Tights wise, there's that site, forgot the name, but someone mentioned it on winter cycling forum and they have special tights for real cold weather. I might get something similar if i feel like riding later on.
