Thought you lived in Denver! You ride without long johns? When I'm up in the mountains around here in the winter, you bet your bippy I do. I guess though I can remember riding in 25 degree weather in Wyoming with a t-shirt on occasionally when I was a kid. Didn't go very far.
Yeah, it's a dry cold!

I DO live in Denver now, BUT I lived in Wisconsin for 31 years before that!    ;D  People here think I'm crazy because I ride all winter long as long as there isn't snow/ice on the roads.  But I tell you what, after riding snowmobiles in -20F long enough you begin to adapt.  Or freeze your common sense off.  Either way.  ;D   I don't enjoy the cold, but it doesn't bother me here.  I do have a pair of flannel lined jeans that are very comfy in the mountains.  In the winter I usually wear a pair of fleece pajamas under my jeans and wear my ski parka with my winter riding gloves.

It's not my common sense that I worry about freezing off when I ride in the cold...

Scottie... fleece pajamas while you're riding -  now that's a confident guy!  ;D
