    My advice....DON'T overdress. At that temp, shorts, longsleve jersey, longfinger gloves not winter gloves and fairly warn socks. I use Gortex socks at those temps, but my toes freeze REALLY easy. Something like me in the pic below. That was got pretty cold Good Luck and let us know how you did!
