    Aye my longs were out today too. 2 pairs of gloves as well. Crackin once you get going when it's as crisp as that though eh?

    Little bit of groundfrost but nothing to worry about.

    dhb 3/4s[1] for me, plus thermal long sleeve under the short sleeve jersey.

    It was still a bit cold though.

    [1] Whatever the fluffy backed material they're made of is, it's *lovely*.

    Yeah but you practically live in the tropics. The cold weather would be the least of your worries if you wore that rig-out up here.

    I had my buff on today to cover my ears. It certainly was fun cycling past all the car drivers our scraping their cars :blush:
     
  7. I commute in my work trowser so my knees are always covered but I have to admit I wore a wind proof jacket under my waterproof today and some thicker gloves and I went by the road too incase the path was icy.

    Had no frost down here yet - there was meant to be some this morning, but nothing so far. Was just about warm enough in my 3/4s and a long-sleeved T shirt with a hiviz vest over the top. However my toes got rather cold, as did my middle finger on my right hand. I think soon I'm going to have to make some covers for my tie clips to keep the wind off my feet, and maybe upgrade my gloves. I may also have to move over to track suit bottoms.

    Frosty in Bristol this morning. Couldn't find my fleece headband so my ears were stinging by the time I got to work.

    Was certainly a chill this morning. I commute in work clothes, but its out with the winter gloves from now on I think.

    Was bloody freezing at 6am riding from Bexley to Putney. Roubaix longs, base layer, long sleeve,a windproof jacket, thermal liner gloves, outer windproof gloves, thermal socks, overshoes and a headband kept the worse out.
