Winter Clothing Guide

Yep, it's almost that time of year again. So I'm re-posted my clothing guide. I've been using this winter clothing guide for a long time and it's never let me down. Hopefully it will come in handy for some of you. The temp ranges are for off-road riding, if you're going out on the road dress for the next coldest range.

50-60 degrees ~ Cycling shorts with lycra knee warmers, short sleeve jersey with a sleeveless base layer undershirt, lycra arm warmers and full finger gloves. add windstopper vest for breezy or moist conditions.

40-50 degrees ~ Cycling shorts with lycra tights or leg warmers, long sleeve jersey with long sleeve base layer undershirt. Rain resistent/windproof jacket for breezy or moist conditions. Full finger windproof gloves.

30-40 degrees ~ Cycling shorts with thermal tights, long sleeve jersey with long sleeve baselayer undershirt, thermal jacket, winter cap, winter gloves and booties.
*Long sleeve jersey not needed with a thermal jacket.

20-30 degrees ~ Cycling shorts with thermal bib tights, long sleeve jersey with long sleeve baselayer undershirt, thermal jacket, winter cap, winter gloves and booties.

Below 10 degrees~just shorts and a jersey, because you'll be on an indoor trainer in front of the TV, unless you're nuts.

-15F. Call me nuts. It's not without its dangers, expense, and potential discomfort, but it was fun.
