I ride in the winter to commute, run errands and just plain have fun. Several things over the last few years have helped keep me comfortable down to -10F: Neoprene boot liners, fleece socks, nylon snow pants (huzzah!) and compression base layer stuff. Hunting/fishing shops often stock them for less than bike shops do. Costco is also carrying big boxes of those disposable hand and toe warmers, which are lifesavers on very nasty days. I also found a neoprene jersey-like top on eBay which is great on windy days. It's like half a wetsuit.

Has anyone tried a winter-specific shoe? I bought my cyclocross/MTB shoes a half size large so I could use a sock system or potentially even heated insoles (my goal is to be able to do 40 mile rides down to 20 degrees or so). However there are a lot of insulated shoes made by Lake, Specialized, Pearl Izumi, Sidi, etc. that are built up with neoprone and such, and have fewer vents at the front of the shoe. Has anyone tried these? Seems like an expensive alternative to just a neoprone shoe cover... but I'm a roadie, so of course I'm looking for cool toys.

Winter means none of those family pedal-cars on the LFP! Ask me about dressing for winter... I'm from Maine!
