Hello biking community!
Like most people, every year I make New Year resolutions, but with everything that has happened in 2020, I ushered in 2021 making bucket list plans instead.
Such as, me and “The Stallion” touring different states in my Terry gear, and on my new Raven Ti Gel seat.
I have always enjoyed riding outdoors but because it gets too cold to ride during the winter months here in Louisville, KY, I have to hang “The Stallion” up for a few months. That was before I discovered these amazing fleece tights by Terry!! They have been life altering :–D. Providing both warmth and comfort in weather where I simply wouldn’t have considered going for a ride before.
This is me in 40 degree weather, wearing my Terry Powerstretch Pro Tights and “The Stallion” equipped with a Terry Raven Ti Gel seat. This is exactly what I need to train for my first ride in April in Jamaica.
What cold weather biking accessories are you wearing?
Thank you Terry – the Original Women’s Bicycling Company – for giving me 3 extra months of outside training. Looking forward to exploring more new places through winter, spring, and beyond!

I wear the cool weather tights and ride down to the low 30s in the Brooklyn NY area. They’re the only ones in petite. I’m not even 5 feet tall. So not many options. But they do the job. For my feet I add the Terry winter shoe covers. That hot pink pops. Lobster claw gloves with those instant heat packs inside. My hands get really cold.

Glad the Coolweather Tights work for you, Nina. I feel like the extremities are key, especially for we cold-handed folks. Thanks for commenting!

My hands, while gloved, don’t do bad in the cold, but my feet sure suffer while cycling. I have to wear a pair of Terry’s C3 Windstopper Socks over my wool socks, plus a wind- and waterproof pair of shoe covers over my shoes. This combo allows me to ride down to 35 degrees. Indeed, clothing made for winter cycling has been life changing. There’s only about one month of the year when I hang up my bicycle now (I live in southern Pennsylvania).

That’s a great solution Sarah, thanks for your comment. Maybe those instant warmers made for ski boots could keep you riding through that missing month! I’ve been meaning to give them a try.

I just hate cycling in the winter but with these suggestions, I hope I will be able to gain my confidence level back.
