I went out the other morning in 24 degrees, windy, but a beautiful day. I used my widder vest and gloves which I kept on the entire ride. I wear an aerostitch suit and a full helmet. I have the adjustable givi shield, at full height. I was comfortable for the hour ride. The only problem is if you stop. I stopped for a few minutes to change my neck wrap and in just that minute my hands and head were really cold. What it demonstrated to me was the danger if my heated gear were to fail or if the bike broke down and I was left out in the cold for any period of time. So be careful out there. But it is amazing that in such cold temps one can ride in comfort:))) Long Island, NY

Thanks for the insight. A number of us are planning to ride in the Toys of Tot ride on Sunday in Chicago (barring snow, rain or serious drop in temp). Safety is always first.

Happy holidays to all!

I use a one-piece snowmobile suit that I purchased several years ago through Sportsman`s Guide magazine for around $69.99. The suit is called: Gide Gear Snowsuit. With that suit, I do not even have to wear an undercoat, just a shirt and jeans, and I have rode approx. 70 miles per day, 5 days a week, in (wind chill) -20 degree weather. The only problem however, I do not believe the ones sold today (at that price) are filled with down...if you get one filled with down (I believe it will work on colder temperatures); I also use snowmobile gloves and thermal-insulated boots....no electricity, I do not want to be caught far away from home stranded and freezing.
I also use a knitted mask that fits over my head, face and neck, and a full face helmet.

Impressive. I'll ride my mountain bike in 20 degree weather but not my road bike or swing.
Good for you gents.

Thx Pastor Ron for the tip! I've skied all over the US and Canada. As much as I love the winter, I'm still not fond of being cold, but it's for a good cause so we'll see how I fair tomorrow.
