Windstopper overshoes plus warm socks, knitted Sealskin gloves, winter balaclava that's my must have crucial gear. Apart that rather light clothing as I'm worm up quiet quickly, maybe some base layer under jersey when is colder.

Endura merino socks and Altura overshoes keep spray, rain and wind out beautifully.
On-one merino base layer, usually 3/4 and full length bibs.

Will often use a roadie style windproof gilet under my top layer - keeps the chill off yer chest really well.

Winter version of the roadie cap - thermal with fold down bit that covers ears and back of neck - toastie!

Altura full finger gloves

an Orange WindShelter fleece/waterproof and an Orange headtube/buff

General gear. I make changes as the temps drop.

Lake MXZ 302s on the feet. Thin sock under merino wool sock. Toe warmers at 20 and below.
Craft lobster outer with various wind proof inner gloves, hand warmer when needed added.
Bellwether windfront pants, lycra tight added when 25 and below.
Bellwether coldfront jacket
1 long sleeve wool mix jersey and when real cold a short sleeve jersery under the long sleeve jersey.
Craft Balaclava light weight. Use a heavier balaclava when it gets real cold or it is windy.
