    I'm pondering plastic bags over wool socks (possibly sandwiched by another sock). If that doesn't work, I have mixed platform-spd pedals, and I'll just go to wearing "normal" winter shoes.

    Uhg - this is my route home when it's dark. It's either this, or one of the 4-6 lane arterials. Hopefully the future completed ART won't build quite the same reputation.
