A bit chilly this morning

I see that God had the AC on a bit high this morning down here in the sunny south. I work in an office so I have to wear nicer cloths which are not conducive to 30 degree temps riding down the interstate at 70 mph. Besides chaps, what do you wear to keep your less warm? That was the worst part of the ride.

Chaps. Jacket with fleece on under. Gauntlet gloves and face mask... 22 degrees when I left work this morning! Getting cold.

New York winter:

I wear my one piece thermal sleeping bag with a t-shirt, and a long-john underneath it. When I come to the office, I take the one piece off, and wear my shirt and trousers which I keep on a hanger in the office.

This morning is a bit warmer than yesterday, low thirties. I've seen 10s this past week. The outfit above has kept me warm throughout.

I leave for work at 4:30am and it's a 30 mile ride so, on those chilly mornings, I wear a full faced helmet, Gerbing S2 Heated Gloves and a Firstgear Thermo One-Piece Suit.

Whew, I thought it was cold here in Colorado, 25 Tuesday morning. Ploy pro, chaps, leather jacket with liner. Love to get some electric gloves.

I have the Icon Bronson overpant. A good solution IMO. Keeps your nice duds clean, keeps you warm, and you don't look too much like a dufus on your bike.

Yep, I had a nice hour ride to work this morning in SC, took about 30 minutes after I got here to regain finger dexterity!
Gotta find some heated gloves!
