I,m heading down to my local bike shop to pick up a little cool weather gear in a few minutes. The temperature in the mornings when i ride to work is averaging 3 to 5 degrees Celcius which is just a little above freezing. So a pair of insulated gloves and some type of an insulated skullcap to fit under my helmet for starters. When i started riding to work this spring once the snow and ice had gone my hands were often so cold as to be useless for a the first few minutes after arriving. I did look into battery heated gloves but the reviews are generally poor. They have Outdoor Research gripper gloves which should help and if necessary a pair of cycling poagies will be added. I first used poagies on my kayak in spring weather, for anyone not familiar with the term, they fasten with hook and loop over the bars, are large enough for gloves to slip into and keep wind and rain, etc off hands and or gloves. The poagies i found at a company called Mountain Equipment Co-op.
