-16 degrees and loving it.

It's been a great start to my winter cycling outside. I'm loving the new bike (Trek Stache 5) and rolling out on the groomed trails throughout our region. I live in a very big snowmobile region so there are 100+ miles of groomed trails I get to play on right in my backyard. The best part is it's been a killer workout and the cold temps haven't been an issue at all.

Hi from Connecticut. God Bless you for going out in these temps. I have retreated to the rollers in the garage. Tell us what you are riding? And tires? Best regards.

Also, how long were you able to stay out and ride in these temps?

This is my new winter rig Trek Stache 5 29+. This ride was almost 3 hours and I was nice and warm the whole ride. I wore cycling bibs with legs warmer with a pair of fleece lined pants over them. A pair of wool socks and insolated, water resistance hiking boots. Just a heavy pair of gloves, and full head wrap and cycling cap under my helmet and neck warmer. t-shirt, wool cycling jersey with arm warmers and sweatshirt with my yellow windbreaker over it all.
