While in California it would get up into the 80's and 90's during the day, it was still mid to low 40's at nights, so I had to ride in to work in that every morning. The key to cold riding is to layer your clothing. I would have a long sleeve shirt, a fleece, a jacket, and then a heavy coat on almost every day. Just take a backpack or bungee tie-downs to hold the extra stuff for the ride home. I rode about 65 miles each way like that and loved every minute of it. Just make sure the tires are good and warmed up before hitting any twisties you may encounter on your way to/from work.
The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all of fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomanical, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully. - Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion
