So its here..... the 'big chill'. Temperatures have dropped to an evil 3 degrees C over the past week or so in the UK. Below are recommendations for some essential winter warmers to help make your commute or winter warrior club run more bearable, and much more comfortable. The format will follow the same as my hat post, with a specific recommendation to suit 3 types of budget. So have a read and grab yourself a winterized bargain so nothing mother nature can throw at you will stop you racking up those magical freezing training miles.
First up are neck tubes - I admit to being a total convert after grabbing one of these a couple of weeks ago. They really do stop evil drafts from creeping in and totally enhance a feeling of snugness when pulled tight and high.
Overshoes - Essential, if like me you have a ridiculously vented pair of sidis designed for summer. They swallow up more cold air than I can handle! Choose waterproof shoes for all weather commuting and thermals for those snappy winter road rides.
Socks - Essential for insulation. Coolmax simply wont cut it when the temperatures drop into single figures... sweat wicking becomes less of a priority, and thermal insulation becomes a necessity.
Gloves - The very crux of whether you can weather the weather....or something like that! A decent pair of winter gloves are something that can make or break your ride. Lose warmth in your fingers and every gear change or brake becomes a painful experience. not to mention trying to fish out your coins at the coffee stop, a nigh on impossible task with 'icicle fingers'.
Base Layers - A decent baselayer will keep you sweat free, regulate your temperature and provide important core insulation.
Miscellaneous Mentions - Perfect additional items that can bring you warmth during the miles...
Handwarmers - 95p
Le Col Headband - £16.99
Quoleum Extra Hot Embrocation - £8.99
