    A few commutes at -6 this year, I do need knee warmers in addition to my normal shorts below -3 I find. Lucky to have a fully gritted (salted) route.
    Currently riding a Whyte T130C, X0 drivetrain, Magura Trail brakes converted to mixed wheel size (homebuilt wheels) with 140mm Fox 34 Rhythm and RP23 suspension. 12.2Kg.

    Wife was going to commute in today as it was a lot warmer (-0.5 vs -4.5) and a lot less frost. Garden paving was slippy so at last minute persuaded her that the bus was a better option. Had reports 30 mins later that on a section of the cycle route that there was black ice and a number of riders had fallen.
    I took the car....

    Sometimes. Maybe. Possibly.

    I’ve ridden my bike in a +3°C sunny weather in Seoul, provided there’s no snow or frost on the road or bike lanes. I may not be able to go colder than that because the layers of clothing will make it hard to pedal.
