I've been riding for a few years so have picked up some tips but so much I still don't know. I live in Colorado and want to keep cycling through the winter. Can someone give me some advice on winter gear - body suit, jacket - type material etc.

My budget is $500.00 <- I hope this is reasonable.

    Is there an american site you can ask on ? I could tell you Aldi and Planet X are good and cheap but I don't think you have them over there ?

    yeah, you need to find someone that lives in the same vicinity of Colorado as you do and ask them.

    The whole of the UK is smaller than Colorado and I am currently wearing shorts to work as its 14deg. but the folks up the other end of the country have snow. .... So I only imagine that Colorado has just a large deviation in weather.

    Thanks All for the replies.
    DavesNotHere <- I'll check the Facebook group you linked.

    FYI - Colorado can be bitter cold, with wind chill factors below 0 (I'm looking at riding in weather between -5F and 40F)
    Most days are dry, but it is common to be windy - when it is wet it is very wet, but if it snows or their is ice I don't ride.

    Thanks Again.
