Re: Success on 7 deg F motorized bicycle work commute!
The key to cold weather riding is the clothing. Multiple layers, topped with a wind/water resistant layer and you can generally keep from getting too cold. Unfortunately I have some (arthritis) problems with my hands and knees so if they get too cold I'm pretty much screwed for the next couple of hours after getting inside. Currently looking for new gloves, the stitching between and around the fingers has given up on the ones I wore through last winter, so they're no longer wind or waterproof.
Any day that starts with a good ride is already a better day, and a bad day riding still beats a good day working.
