What do you usually wear during cold days or winter?
1. Short sleeve jersey and bib shorts with arm and leg warmer?
2. Long sleeve jersey and bib shorts with arm warmer?
3. Long sleeve jersey and bib leggings?
4. Bike jersey and bibs with some cycling jackets? So you can take the jacket off when you heating up!
5. Just do indoor cycling, not going outside, and wear whatever is comfortable?

I personally will wear the SSL jersey and bib shorts with a jacket outside, so when I start to sweat, I can take the jacket off. How about you?

Long sleeve jersey and shorts with jacket and tights over shorts so I can easily remove if/when temps warm during the day.

Wool. More layers as the temp drops. A thin jacket to top things off for the colder days.

Knickers, tights when it gets colder.

Wool cap and socks.

Assorted thicknesses and types of gloves depending on the temps.

Sounds like the plan! Thanks for sharing!

Thank you velodog, it is really hard to get outside when temperature is getting cold, so sometimes, really envy those people who lives in the places where all four seasons is just Spring, haha !

Where I live, I generally bike from late March into early December. I'll ride as long as temps are in the 30's or above. Lower than that and I switch to Nordic skiing when there is snow, hiking when there isn't. Some of the warmer bike clothing is also good for hiking and Nordic skiing.

I start adding layers below 65.
60-65 definitely a long sleeve base layer under my jersey.
55-60 I will wear long bibs and longer or wool socks with above
50-55 I will wear a Gore-Tex winter cycling jacket with above
45-50 full finger gloves with above
40-45 add balaclava with above (and only do mountain and don’t do road)
30-40 full winter lined long bibs and another top layer with above

I’m east coast so humidity is a thing

I really don’t like being cold with the wind chill. If I don’t feel like dressing up I will just Zwift.

Well, first of all, below 53 or so degrees I wear bike shorts and cycling tights. In the mid-40's I wear 1 midweight base layer and a cycling jacket. In the mid 30's arm warmers, 2 midweight base layers. Mid-20's, I double up the arm warmers and wear 3 midweight base layers. In all instances a balaclava.

Best regards and
Happy Holidays

So we got this review article from washingmachinepost . The bloger reviewed our CL1202, BL2601 as well as the jacket JA0700. Any one interested, feel free to checkout!

Just want to clarify, as we are just at very early stage for the pro line SOUKE, so this year, we actually didn't make the winter collection. The long sleeve jerseys on our website actually our early autumn style, in 2022, we will have more winter collections, as well as women's collections coming out!

BTW, the jackets is really worthy a trial, cannot go wrong for the price. :D

You go colder than I can manage! I absolutely love XC skiing. I’m closer the ocean so I get less snow, as much as I love it. I went from training as a speed skater to a rec cyclist. XC is my love beyond both. But traditional XC not ski skating. I know, that’s the new world.... But traditional XC is hard to explain if you haven’t spent time doing it. There is a rhythm to it, on groomers tracks, that’s just great when you get it.

Breaking fresh snow sucks.

I do classic, not skate skiing. Not really in into the backcountry thing, though breaking fresh snow is better than being forced to use others tracks on steep hills. I don't even know why they track the hills at ski centers anyway as you can't snow plow on narrow trails with tracks.

Bomb it with a trail tele at the bottom :)

If the trail allows for it sometimes I can put my left ski in the right track and use the right to angle and control the descent. But after the trail has been used a lot that “shoulder” will be too rutted to be usable.

Ha! I never could get the telemark thing down. Whenever I tried to do a telemark turn, I always ended up doing a snow plow turn.

I'm with you, more fun than anything else. Skinnyski.com for trail reports. I watch FIS racing either style, but classic is the pretty one, especially when Jessie Diggins is racing,

Tele with light gear does eventually ruin it.
