I'm doing an MS150 this weekend. It'll probably be around 45 degrees and dark when I leave, then get up to 70 and sunny by the end. I don't want to carry more than I have to, so what suggestions do you have for clothing?

An good wicking under shirt (like D-feet) and jersey with arm warmers and leg warmers

If its colder than your comfort than get a few pages of newspaper under the jersey and toss it when its warm enough

Wear arm and leg warmers, which become compact enough to put into your jersey pockets when it get warm. You may also want to consider a head band to cover you ears, and this is also very compact to store away once it gets warm.

Good luck.

Regular jersey or two, arm and leg warmers, wind vest, neoprene ear band, long fingered gloves (or polypro liners under regular gloves).

jeeeze.... and I was thinking you have the same problem that I do- having a 31-32" waist and being 6'1"- finding bibs that don't pull in the crotch (vs. wearing a bigger size that fits like a diaper in the rear)... oh well, I'll save that for another thread
