Yep, below 40 and the Gerbings gloves come out.  Under 35, and the jacket liner joins in for fun. :190:

I don't mind it too much; just buy good heated gear!  Of course, I'd much rather ride when it's sunny and 70F, but even if it's below freezing, I'm riding.  My coldest commute to date was -2F.  When I rode to lunch, it was a balmy 7F.

My coldest commute ever to work was -32F. Of course I always walked the 200 yds from my back door to where I worked! :001:

Seriously, we were camping last weekend and these old farts are telling me their "this is not camping, when we were camping in Vermont, it was snowing!" stories (btw: I love them, love all those stories, can't get enough of them) and each one of them old timers said that they resisted the heated gear *thing* for the longest time. Heck, one of them had a friend who forcefully gave him a pair of battery operated heated gloves just the previous weekend and he went and bought himself another pair and then sat around the fire at 35F past 12AM me shivering and him telling stories whilst wearing his battery operated Gerbings happily. It was hilarious. As funny as that is, though, because of my tendency to value old timers' views and traditions a lot, I never realized how much their notions had affected me in the past. I bought my first heated gear liner 3 years ago, but resisted getting the gloves or anything else; and then caved and bought gloves and sold them a month later - because I wouldn't wear them - "too many cables" I would say. "I spend 15 minutes getting ready for a 20 minute commute, I'll just take the cold dammit!" I would proclaim. And year by year I added something heated to the set and then sold it in the end.

Yeap, a good pair of liners, and heated socks are a must.

Though I still don't have heated gloves  :745:
