Looking to see if anyone in central Indiana rides out in this weather? I'm in Avon, 10 miles west of Indianapolis and am out on my bike daily, as long as there isn't any snow on the ground.

Anyone else still ride?

Dammit man lol, some one post that lives in Indiana that wants to ride with me. And 60 degrees? I'm out when it's 20-30. 60 degrees is shorts and T-Shirt weather (not on the bike) haha. I wish I lived some place warm.

yeah Im glad my bikes in the shop right now cause there was a cold front this weekend and it was pretty chilly outside..... but seriously how and what do you guys gear up with? I just wear a mesh jacket and some leather jardine gloves usually with just jeans and a tshirt during the day but at night when it drops into the 60's it just seems a lil too cold for comfort and I dont know what im going to do when it drops in the 30's like you guys ride! Its my daily so if there are any tips on what works good to stay warm that would be awsome.

I just wear a thermal long underwear shirt, another shirt and my icon jacket with inner lining and 20-30 degrees feels like nothing.

Its 29 this morning. I'd ride in it if I really wanted to, or haven't been on the bike in months. But its only been two weeks since ive riddin, so im not to that point yet.

Ive found out, its not really hard to miss riding when its cold. Sure I'd like to ride, but It doesn't frustrate me like rain does. Ill get to the point where Ill want to just go ride in the rain (I don't though), but when its cold I have no desire to get out and ride.
