I need toe warmers.

I was all excited about going out for a ride this morning. Got everything together last night, all I had to do was get dressed, grab the pack, get the dogs and go. Dogs were no problem.


This place is maybe a 20 minute drive from me. Trails are ok, hardly any hills, mostly laps around different lakes/ponds. Rocky and rooty though.


But this time of year, the ponds are frozen over.


The studs worked great, out on the water and on the trail. Some parts were a little frozen too.


Just me and the dogs today (again) so the only action shots are of them.


I would have like to stay out longer, but my toes were frozen and the dogs paws were getting a little beat up. Hopefully next time I will get some toe warmers and not go solo so I can get some actual riding shots.

Nice writeup. I can see why you need studs.

I got some shoe covers and put some fleece pieces over the toes [between the covers and my shoes]. I'm good to -30C + windchill.

I think my feet were cold before I put my shoes on, so I was doomed. My MTB bike shoes fit correctly, so in the winter they're a bit snug with wool socks on. Next time I'll try some covers, I think I have some laying around.

I can't wait until the white **** melts.

I bet it was good to get out to the timber, even if your feet were cold!

I used to wear two pairs of socks, with duct tape over my toes on the outside pair. Worked surprisingly well
