I got mine at my bike shop a couple of years ago, can't remember what kind they are and right now they're put away with my other "snow" stuff.

I had a pair of neoprene gloves once that I thought would be warm, they weren't. I'd go with a thicker pair if your hands are sensitive (mine are).

I was a UPS driver, which was where all the rain came in, ha! Back then I wore work gloves that I got at Lowe's. They were thick with a sticky hand-side, got them by the garden section. They kept my hands warm when it was wet and/or snowy.

Hi Carlatl:

Since you are used to the cold and rain too, can you advise me how to keep my hands warm? Saturday, I had gloves but let them get soaked. I changed to a dry pair and put plastic bags around them. that worked pretty well. This morning, I had on my cold weather gloves and my fingers froze which was bad for controlling the bike and changing gears (they are going back to REI). What's the secret to keepng my hands warm? that's my only downfall. thanks!

I'll take any advice. Bike riding in cold temps is new for me.

Nope, I'm still not allowed off the stationary bike. Soon I'll be back on the road though!!! Sorry I missed it, I kind of prefer riding in the cold and am used to being soaked outside, ha!

Did anyone enjoy that this past Saturday in Wash DC/Arlington? emoticon

It was really hard for me to ride in the cold and rain for those couple of hours but I did it! 30 miles total and it was about 40 degrees and steady rain the entire ride. My feet had no feeling when I go on Metro! I decided to look at it as a challenge instead of fun. emoticon Really glad I did it.

You don't have to go fast. You just have to go.
