Even in California, it's chilly! Before jumping on my bike yesterday, I raced back upstairs to grab my knee warmers, and stuffed a pair in my back pocket for a friend. While we love to up the cute-factor with a matching set of Knee Warmers, it's the long-term health of your knees that is the driving factor. We're spoiled here in CA. I don't know how you folks in CO and other cold states do it. Respect.
Make sure you wear knee warmers in temperatures below 60 degrees.
