What I wear, when I wear it, and how it works on my bike
It’s not even Thanksgiving and I’m wearing my balaclava, lobster gloves, leg warmers and ski goggles. I’m also feeling a little smug. A bus fire shut down the southbound traffic route that all the buses between my home and my office use. A construction fire shut down two L lines, shunting passengers onto the L line between my house and my office. But my commute was still just 20 minutes of smooth riding on the lakefront. Cold, but smooth. I put on my gloves a few minutes before I left the house and my hands stayed warm all the way to work.
I have on Wolford wool tights, wool knee socks, NYDJ jeans (black), the silk cuff cotton t-shirt and the black cashmere crewneck. It was still chilly in my office.
