    You're not the only one. I've been in pretty much full-on winter gear last few mornings. Heck with cold!

    35F in Pittsburgh PA this morning. Going to explore the downtown and see if I can find the Allegheny Passage trailhead -- see how far I get.

    definitely brought out the tights, winter gloves, arm warmers, balaclava and the fleece headsock, but I refuse to put the moose mitts back on the bike. the balance between freezing in the morning and burning up in the afternoon is a fun dance.

    I put on thin gloves and didn't wear flip-flops.

    I was cranking on the W&OD last night around 8:30 and could have sworn that I felt some sleet. Was also rocking the shorts and fingerless gloves, bad call.

    No shorts, back to the bib knickers with long ski socks, full finger gloves, and ear band for the ride in. While a decent afternoon temperature, the wind made me glad of the warmer gear (but left off the ear band and my coldgear base layer).

    I think I found my min temp yesterday afternoon for arm warmers + vest (jacket & winbreaker were in backpack and wish I'd worn them instead for ride home - yes, I'm stubborn and didn't want to stop!).

    Great ride. Now if they can only finish the trail section by the Hot Metal Bridge

    Tonight went a lot better! Wool socks, gloves, and a full shell rather than just a vest made a world of difference. I expect that my fingers will be capable of curling around cold glass by sometime tomorrow evening.
