No reason to hang up the bike yet.  The clothing is one challenge that I had a pretty good handle on, but the feet suffered in cold and wet conditions.  Slush spraying onto the shoe covers would eventually creep around the booties and into the shoes and feet would be cold.

After two rides, I like the shoes I just got, enough to comment.  

Garneau O winter shoes; these beauties have an inner shoe with the wire/dial system for tightening, an integrated neoprene outer with a waterproof zipper and a rubber flap to keep the crap off the zipper and off the tension dial.  The tension can be adjusted with gloves, just open the Velcro flap, turn the wheel, close the flap! 

 

I picked them up from our friends at CycleSolutions in anticipation of cold and wet conditions at the cyclocross race on Saturday.  As it was, Horseshoe Valley got snow on Friday night, so we got to race in snow, (that is ride some, run some)  Yay, feet stayed dry and warm.

Ride number two: CX bikes on trails then gravel / paved roads on Sunday.   95km ride with temperature about 4C, mix of cool, with a little rain during coffee break, and finished with sun and wind. 

Success, happy feet again!

Thanks for the unsolicited post of the 0 degree LS-100 winter shoe. Glad it works for you! Makes my job easier:-)

Sounds good.  How much do they cost?

I would concur with cycling winter boots!  I've been using the Shimano ones for a couple of years now and they've been great (next ones will be the LG ones, Dan!)  I use them for commuting, weekend rides, etc.  Feet are always dry and never that cold.
