tips for keeping warm when cycling in the winter?
- OldHippieLv 71 month agoBest Answer
One or two of these ideas might sound screwball...but they work. 💪 Surgical gloves under winter cycling gloves. The latex and/or vinyl traps body heat. Sandwich bags from Subway under wool socks will show the same results. IMHO...the best wool socks come from DeFeet International. These are GREAT! https://defeet.com/collections/woolie-boolie/produ...
Get a balaclava from Pearl Izumi. https://www.pearlizumi.com/US/en/shop/unisex/hats/...
Aero Tech Designs sells all kinds of winter cycling apparel from gloves to coats to thermal tights. https://www.aerotechdesigns.com/ Lobster gloves for super cold temps. Dress in layers. I'm no hero. But I've ridden in temps as low as 10 degrees Fahrenheit.

Keeping dry as possible is a must
Light weight clothing, dress in layers
Windproof is an added bonus (days below 45 you will feel windchills)
Thermals = under armour type (light to mid weight, not heavy-weight once blood if flowing becomes too much)
Wool socks (warm and DRY) _____Ski gloves (warm, waterproof, flexible to use shifters/brakes, and most have a hand warmer pouch) Glacier Glove Ice Bay Neoprene Gloves (neoprene gloves, waterproof, all grip. I use on rainy days 45-65 degrees)180s ear warmers_____Dress in layers3-in-1 jacket (fleece and/or rain coat) Windproof fleece (cold/dry days) rain pants (wet days. snow pants, are too bulky thermals solve lack of warmth)

wear warm clothing.
load your cycle (uni, bi, or tri) on public transportation and find a seat on board

Layered clothing. No cotton. Wool or synthetics. If you feel a sweat coming on, stop and adjust clothing.
Bar mitts work great for keeping hands warm.
I like clothes with windproof front panels and more breathable back panels. Pit zips also help.

- merino wool
- windproof gloves
- thin layers: trapped air is a good insulator and practically weightless.
