Ok, recently it has actually gotten cold here in North Carolina.
One day this past week a check of the weather said 14 degrees F, 10mph wind, feels like 5 degrees F.
It was my first expirence in riding a good distance in anything that cold. I put close-fitting fleece hiking pants under my tights, an extra layer up top, wool socks, a clava, and for my hands I had a pair of "windproof" gloves and liners.
Everything was great. I was nice and tosty warm, even my face and throat adjusted to the cold.
Only problem was that my fingers felt like they were splitting open by the time I finished with my 5 mile commute, despite the double layers of gloves.
Does anyone possibly know any tricks to keeping a bit more heat around the hands, or is it just another search for gloves again?
