I put cyclocross tires on an old steel frame road bike that I converted to single speed. I rode it to campus all year long up in Maine, through feet of snow. I have no idea what the temp was. Cold.

-34 C to work Friday, brutally cold coming home. Not fun at these temperatures.

I just took a friend on a short, ten minute fat bike ride in about 3 inches of snow in the state park close to my house. He just bought a frame and fork and was coming over to give me a deposit for a wheelset. He's the same size as my son so he wanted to try my son's bike to get a taste for fat bikes.
Yesterday, I did twelve miles in 20 degree weather with zero wind. Ride was great. This morning, it was 14 degrees with a somewhat healthy NW wind. We figured it was going to be a short ride so we didn't get all crazy suiting up. We lasted about ten minutes and high tailed it back to my truck like a pair of sissies.
I'll go out again later but wearing the same outfit I had on yesterday, washed of course.

Ever: -30F
This year: -25F
Today: -15F

I commute by bicycle year round because I enjoy riding a bicycle. With the correct clothing I get to work and I am warm. Folks who drive automobiles are cold because their vehicles never warm up. I have my heater on full blast the second I roll out of the garage.

Correct clothing for me is multiple layers. Inner layer is a woolen t-shirt with either silk long johns, wool lined pants, or heavy wool pants. Next comes a cotton oxford cloth dress shirt. Then my outer layer is a good fleece jacket. If it below -25F I add a woolen vest under the fleece jacket.

Boots are Kamik winter barn boots, good to -40. For my hands I wear a reflective inner glove with mittens over them, then bar mits on the outside. Mine are from 45Nrth.

Tires are Schwalbe ice spikers. Hydraulic disc brakes. And a leather saddle. I have broken a couple plastic/composite saddles on those below 0F days.

Actually the warm winter days (above 25F) are the worst. The snow melts and turns into slush, then re-freezes leaving ruts which can catch a wheel.

I cycle above 60 F. I do not like cold and think it's stupid to wear a coat on a bicycle.

It was -22F 3 years ago is unreasonably cold. I know how to suit up for cold riding and I do zero F regularly but the dog starts lifting paws at 10F. My feet never get cold unless they are planted on the ground.
