Catalogue of Sorts

What I wear, when I wear it, and how it works on my bike

Tuesday, Sunny and Cold


Rode in this morning, which was nice, but frustrating because the last quarter mile at both ends is a slog. Linus was filthy by the time I got to work and although I tried to clean the slush off, I think I made a bit of a mess. I hate locking up outside in single digits because I get so cold unlocking, prepping, and then riding off.

I was over-dressed for the ride in, which did not bother me much because my hands stayed warm. I had on: tights, smartwool short socks, the NYDJ black ponte jeans, my Icebreaker Rio pants, the Merrell boots, an Icebreaker longsleeve t-shirt, the Smartwool Maroon Bells henley (which is one of the two warmest sweaters I have), and the Uniqlo merino cardigan. I also wore my Icebreaker balaclava, cap and Torch helmet, along with my lobster gloves. Topped everything with the Kors grey wool car coat and wool scarf. I figured it was 5 degrees and I wanted to be warm, which I was. I had the coat unbuttoned about half-way there and could not wait to strip off some of the layers by the time I got my bike situated in the office.
