A quick post about some absolute bargain kit my other half got me.
My son swears by neoprene gloves for winter road riding, but he's a thin blooded type and really feels the cold. Being of hardier Highland stock I can happily ride in fingerless gloves for a lot of the winter.
Well, tonight was different, it has turned decidedly chilly here, so I thought I had better layer up. In addition I took a brand new pair of neoprene Oneill gloves, which I assume are usually used by surfers / windsurfers / kite boarders etc.
I now understand why my son rates them so highly, they were excellent and kept the chill off me for the whole two hours I was out.
Best of all, the price, £2 at the local charity shop.
She's good is my missus
