first time for me to ride in 60 degree weather, I went out with my mesh jacket with liner I was cold.
went back home and put my new tour master jet jacket on with a insulated liner nice and toasty.
my nose and hands were cold, I have a full face helmet and closed my vents it help a little but my hands any good cold weather glove that are not bulky.

I've been using glove liners when I head home from work at 4:30 in the morning and it's about 45 here in CT at that time. They're the same I use in the winter when I'm boarding and skiing. They wick while also being wind proof at the same time, and adds a little extra warmth. You can get a decent pair for $15-20 and not have to give up the flexibility of you current gloves. I wish I could tell you the brand of mine but I cut out the tags awhile ago. I haven't given up my mesh jacket just yet, my liner does a so so job of blocking the wind. But I might upgrade soon to get a couple more weeks before I have to hang it all up. I got couple pairs of head to toe under armor cold gear that I also use for my winter sports that have come in pretty handy for my 30 mile trek home.

I have mash gloves I don't think a liner will help much, im looking at more of a textile glove.

Up here in good ol Nova Scotia it's getting a bit chilly so I have picked up a tour master jacket and icon gloves that are much warmer than my mesh jacket and gloves. I love the jacket but the gloves take some getting used to. They are much thicker and feel awkward at first. The 3 season pants I have are great with the liner in. A neck warmer is also standard equipment for me these days.

It got up to 72 F today here in Texas, but it was gusty so felt cooler. What I do for colder weather is wear sweat shirts including one hoodie. I have a couple of oversized helmets that fit over the hood, and often wear 5 sweat shirts total. I put the hoodie up and then put the helmet over that. This keeps my face and ears warm and helps a lot. If I am going for a long ride, I take a backpack so I can take off a sweatshirt or two as needed when it warms up. I just wear jeans and sneakers, but my legs and feet never get that cold. I have a good set of riding gloves too. Still, this is Texas. My coldest weather for riding might be 45 F or so, more typically 60 F. Summer is the problem because it gets too hot July-Sep. I rode all 4 bikes today. Gorgeous riding weather.
