Though, Iíve come across another rider wearing the exact same shoes without any protective/thermal covers and decided perhaps I should HTFU.

It beats fake miles though.
I donít usually give much advice on cold weather gear because itís very personal. Some people need more insulation etc. than others for various body parts. However, in general, if you feel comfy at the start of a cold ride, you very likely overdressed and will either sweat too much/overheat or have to shed layers. If you feel slightly chilled, you likely did it right.


We had a fantastic ride btw. Definitely beats fake miles.
