Being cold on the road is no fun. Additionally, as you go hypothermic, your judgement – and hence your ability to be aware of your judgment – becomes impaired. Many textile jackets and suits are available in multi-season configurations, but if those are too costly for you, a windproof shell can do wonders for your warm weather riding gear. If you’ve got the money, quality electric gear is worth every penny when the temperature dips into the 40s on your hour-long commute home. As long as you keep your core warm, your extremities will be much happier. Investing in some insulated gloves is also a good idea if cold-weather riding becomes part of your regimen.
