Cold Weather Biking

Went out for a ride today - weather is 41F and Sunny - really nice out
  • NorthFace hard shell is awesome - vents come in real handy. EDIT: REI article recommends a softshell to let some cold wind through. I think that might work better
  • Bike Helmet is like a ski helmet but much much colder. I need to find a hat that fits underneath. Or go with the Ski Helmet liner.
  • I really need to invest in a pair of 180s. The $5 knockoff kind that can be found here
  • I need a better pants solution - double pair of sweats + windproof is too much
  • Can't go wrong with long socks
REI has a good article on winter cycling here

How long do I plan on riding ? Until there is snow/sleet/rain on the ground - I don't have fenders
