I bike alone...in the cold
Well, it wasn't that cold - 54°F. I wore fingered gloves, long sleeve shirt, windbreak shell, shorts, and a head band. The long sleeve shirt was a little much as a short sleeve one would do with the shell. Also, my hands got a touch warm and my feet a little cold, so I might double up on the socks next time.
This is part of the mini-game in biking in cooler weather - I try to manage my various clothing options to keep optimum temperature for all my body parts. It's a work in progress, however, I do have a running chart that I can work off of:
Of course, the chest and hands slots will be modified to account for the self generated wind chill, but it's a start.
