When the weather is warm no one ever accuses me of being a fashionista. That's because I am familiar with, but don't always follow, most of cycling’s fashion rules. But when the temperature drops, my friends and I throw all those rules out the window.
Take, for instance, these neoprene gloves; they’re only $12 in the hunting section of your local sporting goods store.
Or when it’s too warm for leg warmers on the climb up, but you’re too lazy to take them off because you’ll need them for the ride down, just roll them down to your socks and feel like it’s 1984 all over again.
Then there’s the tan wool socks with black tights look. Extra warmth on those chilly winter days.
But if that’s not warm enough, no wind is too bitter for the plastic bag sock liner trick.
