These last two mornings weren't too bad. For me it starts to suck under about 30F.

Same here. I already got a cold but the joy I get from riding everyday compensates everything.

Let's see how it goes Thursday when the temp is going to be in the upper 20's.

Glad to have my new waterproof gloves and heated liners this morning.

I can do under 50 degrees, but under 50 degrees and wet. I have a 30 mile commute.

under 40 and dry or under 50 and wet = break out the mannequin "carpooler" for the HOV lane
