Yes, bent in all three times I've ridden. I carried as little as possible. Clothing layers and shell were either worn or stowed. IIRC I had one wool jersey and one lycra, and i wore the wool jersey most of the ride. Fresh non cotton underwear* and fresh socks for each day. Various gloves, and ear warmers. Leg warmers and rainlegs. Flat repair, a few tools. Batteries. Foil blanket. That's about it.
People complained about the cold; wool jersey and rain jacket, leg warmers and rainlegs, and i was great. For the chilly but not cold times, the gilet over wool was sufficient.

*On the bent, I ride with swimming jammers over non cotton briefs. New briefs each day does the trick.
