Two pairs of socks, a hat that goes over my whole head and covers my face. Glasses and two pairs of gloves. i am going to be so much lighter come summer time just because i will get to peel off all these clothes, but I am warm. Told you I hate cold.
    Just a casual observation that I'm sure you already know, when you are cycling versus running, the big difference on what makes you cold is wind (either what you are generating or what is hitting you from nature). That means that it is more important to have a wind blocking layer on the bike that may be missing from your running outfit.

    I made this mistake yesterday. The thermometer on my garage read 23 degrees so I put on another layer - which was a complete disaster. I got sweaty, fogged up my glasses, and ended up being just as cold and that much slower .

    my top layer is a wind jacket. I am surprised at how comfortable I am. I thought it would be a lot worse of course I don't know how cold it is going to get. I am hoping for a warm jan, feb and march.

    I don't wish to add to the work level of rcannon or Ron but it would be kinda cool if there were a mileage total on the leaderboard. If it is easy to program, might this be done?

    Done! It now displays group mileage, and down at the bottom it has a spot for total miles and rides.

    I just want to marvel at the fact that, 4 days into January, we've already logged 3000 miles.
    Beautiful.
