The thing with riding is you need layers since when you hit a hill, or even a long flat, you warm up pretty quickly. I'm lately wearing thermal trousers and trackies, t-shitr, jumper and a spray jacket, and lately haven't had to take the jacket off, although I do get quite sweaty (I just can't be bothered stopping and taking the jacket off as by that stage I'm usually nearly at my destination.
The gloves will be a fantatic help thouch as your fingers really do freeze going down hill at 7am when it's probably 6 degrees outside.
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)

Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!
