Winter Gloves

I finally broke down and bought some winter gloves at CycleGear. My first pair of winter gloves ever. Yes, I think I'm becoming a wuss. However, I look forward to testing out my new gloves. I can't even fathom what it's like to have toasty, hell even almost warm, hands while riding in <50 degrees.

Usually, anything under 60 degrees and my fingers are popsicles. I've been itching to try them out since I bought them at the beginning of the week. Wouldn't you know it, we've had the nicest weather since purchase of said gloves. Today it was mid-50s and I couldn't wait any longer. So I hit the road in my Sedici waterproof women's gloves. Oh my! My hands have never been that toasty. With the advent of winter gloves, I totally don't understand why more people don't ride in the winter.


  1. I love having a nice pair of gloves. Never used them to ride motorcycles. Only riding I ever did was in the summertime, but it is wonderful to have driving gloves in the winter:)

  2. I just picked up a pair of gloves myself and like you I've been dealing with abnormally warm weather for this time of year. It was 64 Degrees today in Jersey and its February.

  3. I know! Not that I'm bummed out; I'd rather have warmer weather, but still...
