I hunted when I lived in Montana, so for winter riding I use heavy wool pants with thermal underwear and Soral pacs (boots with felt liners) with winter socks. I have warm mittens for truly cold conditions/longer rides, but have usually gotten by with insulated riding gloves in my 15 minute morning ride ride to where I volunteer.
This area is pretty arid so if there isn't ice on the ground I usually ride. The coldest temp that I have ridden in Arizona is 17F (-9.4C). When I was much younger, and invincible, I rode to college in Evanston, Illinois, all winter, so I probably rode there down to roughly -19C; that was a fairly short trip as well.
