comment What can I wear in the cold weather to be able to bike to work (where I don't have a shower)
Biking in Colorado daily throughout the winters, I also am a fan of a thin wool sweater as base layer, topped by nylon jacket shell to block out wind. (There do exist non-scratchy wools if you look hard enough.) Same double layer system works for the legs: I use a thin polyfleece pant as base layer, topped by a pair of inexpensive nylon golf pants that flex. These are washer-dryer friendly. I also always pack a cheap compressible down coat for emergencies (when you are not heating yourself by exertion). It is helpful to have panniers to pack this extra gear if you commute daily.
