Sorry to make a post about this so soon as its only September after all, but I always leave it too late and I dont want to do that again this year. I have really poor circulation and so my hands/feet turn to blocks of ice quicker than others.
Overshoes helped my feet a bit but after about 20 minutes the numbness creeps in. So are woolie boolies still considered the "go to" winter riding socks or has something better turned up yet?
As for gloves, everyone always says the aldi ones are good but they didn't work for me even with a thinner silk liner glove layer under them. I was thinking of going all out and just getting some motorbike ones as they seem they should be better!
Could do with a long sleeve base layer and some bib tights, any deals about at the minute?
This is mostly for road biking btw so I guess something with wind breaking material would help on the gloves? I dont seem to notice the cold as much on the mtb..
