How low will you go?
I just walked the dog and thought it felt brisk. I checked the temperature and apparently we are without a temperature. If it were one degree colder, I would suit up for a bike around the block just to do it. At zero, meh.
Well, since you had a wind chill factor that brought it down below zero (-9), you shoulda gone.
I'd wear a hat at those temperatures. The coldest it's been here so far is about 5. That was at night.

I guess it's a matter of what you're used to.
Back when I worked as a MTB coach in Latvia, 0F would mean a regular training day.
Now that I'm back in Denmark, I go boo-hoo when it gets much below 25F.
The first winter back here was nice though, as I hardly felt the cold.
For the time being, I spend a fair bit of time in southern France. They think they're about to die when it hits 32F
what the hells going on over there, you guys must have done something bad in a past life for it to be so cold, lol, id die in that sort of cold.....
Dont ever let the truth get in the way of a funny story....
Tone's, man up and stick your head in the freezer for a bit. It feels refreshing.
On my hike yesterday it started out in the 30s. I had to blow warm air into my hands once or twice.
I'm with Tone's. That is just straight up ridiculous. Right now it's 7:20 am, rainy and cold, and my thermometer says 68 degrees.
0 degrees would kill me.
I like to hug trees at FULL SPEED!
Lowest I've ever gone is over 200 feet below Sea Level.... Death Valley, California.... out there, though the heat kills ya more than the cold.

Helpful Pointer: Don't drink the water there, no matter how thirsty you are.
New Year Day ride a couple of years ago was -6 f. Supposed to be warmer this year, +8 f.
That's 14 degrees warmer. That calls for a bareback ride, IMO.

On this night
A few of us went camping temps hit 9* over night.
Wasnt too bad, but tearing down in the AM sucks.
Big fire, cold beers..yeah doesnt get any better.
"foot to pedal, wheel to dirt, there is no substitute for the act of riding "
We only get a few single digit days a year here, but a few years ago I did a +7deg F windy 4-hour ride.
I do not think I have ever ridden in single digits or lower yet but I am all about breaking records this winter.
I wish I could get weather like that. The coldest it has gotten this year was 45 and it was 80 yesterday. :| I hate florida "winters".
We've warmed to a balmy 22. It is time to go and play outside. I'm thinking cross country skiing for today's fun.
We are still riding here in southern Ontario and likely we will ride until spring.
We did a ride Friday night after the snowfall of 10cm but we were dressed for it The temp was around -3 c and windchill made it feel like -11c
We've ridden in colder temps previous winters, Singlesprocket has a thread on Passion with pics and videos of past years rides
I grew up in Timmins northern Ontario. The average low in winter is -25 to -35c ( -11 to -30f) Thats not counting windchill
The last time I visited Timmins in the winter my car froze solid overnight (I didn't plug in the block heater) and I had to have it towed to a garage to have it thawed which took 2 days
Despite growing up in a cold climate doesn;t mean I like it, but I can make the best of it.
Eat your veggies
it's a frigid 50 degrees here today...same with every "Winter" day...
Not to bad here, will get out for a ride soon after I put the sun block on.

It was a cool 53F at the trail this AM and it was PACKED... For South Florida that is pretty cold, but it was a great AM ride and I put in about 15 miles...
For me anything below 45 and I am staying indoors... Yup I have acclimatized to the tropical climate over the past 25 years...
