You sissy Tahoe riders.

In Colorado we are dealing with negative temps. Like negative 17. This happens about once a year. It has been colder than Polar Bear shit for a while. I rode today and walked to the bus stop. My truck won't start. It froze.

I wear on cold days:

Skinny leg fleece PJ pants over my regular base layers
base layer shirt
another light layer
wool or acrylic sweater.
good quality jacket and snowpants
I wear mittens with touch screen cheapo gloves
sometimes I keep a handwarmer in my pocket
I have a light polyester stretchy balaclava. Balaclavas stay in one place.
Then I drink Irish coffees

Mittens are warmer, my light mittens worn with cheapy knitted gloves with a hole in them are warmer than these fancy puffy gloves I have.

I also lap the gondola!
