    I was riding today and the high was 37 F and the windchill was 25 F. I went about 12 miles. I wear jeans, a T-shirt, then sweater, then leather jacket, then a carhart. Helmet with bandana under to keep air off my face. And gauntlet gloves. My hands get the coldest. Sometimes I’ll put cotton gloves under the gauntlets and that helps.

    I've ridden in freezing and subfreezing temps more than I'd like to admit - at a certain point its just nor safe/worth it. Near the end of a Wisconsin winter, I discovered a literal CRACK in my front tire.

    Heated grips are a must. Thermal baselayers top and bottom. I used to wear two pairs of long johns under my jeans and boots. I aimed for at least 3 layers under my jacket, then a windbreaker over my jacket. Super thick neck gaiter, and don't breathe too heavily inside the helmet or you'll blind yourself.

    God, I am SO glad I moved back to California.

    Use to do down to 25 degrees in Wisconsin/Illinois/Indiana with snow present I'd ride the cruiser but I was young and still had circulation in my toes and fingers, lol. Now I'll do about 40 degrees on a naked bike but I'm bundled with merino wool base layers and heated gear. Any lower than 40 I'll always be behind the fairing of my street glide with the lower fairings also installed.

    Same as Nectar I'm now in San Diego and I'm definitely being spoiled with the year round riding season here.

    It's going to be slightly overcast tomorrow, but no rain or snow (it snowed today). High is 43 (windchill 39). I'll be out and about again. If there isn't rain or snow, and the temp (not windchill) isn't below freezing. i'm good to go.
