    +1 for silk balaclavas. Merino inner gloves are also pretty good.

    You might also consider rechargeable battery powered heated gloves or liners:

    I have the 12v heated liners. They work really well, but the wired connection is a pain. Wish I'd got the battery powered ones.

    Yeah? I'm all over that. Cmc don't sell them I don't think I'll see if any of the aussie mobs do. Separate battery pack seems to be the go rather than the bike battery.

    If it's not already been mentioned, chuck on a set of barkbusters (or a cheap copy thereof), they'll deflect the wind off your hands and delay any thermal degredation (narf) :up

    Good luck with the job
    Lots of great tips already. One of the best things you can do is use lots of layers rather than one bulky item. If you are on and off the bike regularly you will need to be able to move around, bit hard when you look like the Michelin man :) It makes it easier to strip gear off and store it when you need, or other way round.
    I ditch the inner liner that comes with most jackets everytime. I use a wind proof thermal/polar type jacket under my riding jacket instead, cuts the wind, keeps me warm and multipurpose, can be used when gong out after work too :)

    as an (ex?) cyclist, does this mean you will be riding the paths at times? Please defer to everything.
    And, awesome job.
