Have had plenty of snow, to ride in this winter but haven't had temps this low yet this year. I think I am prepared. Looking forward to riding, I have day off work. I have pouches sewn in on the front and back of my long sleeve turtle neck, if I start to freeze out, as an emergency plan, I bring along extra chemical warmers I can put them in the pouches to keep torso warm.
