    Don't know which is worse. Riding your bike in 30F in shorts, or sitting in a car in G'town traffic taking a picture of people having fun on their bikes.

    Even on the colder days, I'll usually just default to my knickers for the commute - only a little longer than those shorts.

    I think the forum doesn't allow you to enter a post in all caps - some kind of spam/troll filter.

    Didn't stop ELITE! Maybe the post was too short?

    Yeah... I haven't broken out the tights yet. Still using knickers. I do keep my knees warm though... as discussed in other threads.

    Dang...today I wore tights over my bibs+knee warmers. Granted, it wasn't as cold as was initially forecast, so it ended up being overkill, but I wasn't hot by any means.

    Yeah, the problem is that for my normal commute, straight from home to the office (door-to-door), I only eek out 3 miles. Not enough to get really cold.

    Today I took a slightly longer route (7m) and had to deal with cold hands by the end, but legs were fine. I guess my shins/knees just dont get too cold. I may invest in a little jar of embrocation, soon.

    The latter is worse. Me, looking longingly out the window.


    I wish I was out there too.
