    How can I get my gloves warmer? I dont really want to go down the electric toasty glove route unless i have to...and I'd like to do this for free if poss. I tried wearing my summe rgloves inside the winter gloves but they wouldnt fit. I already have XXXXXXXXXL size hands so wearing a bigger pair over the top isnt an option. My gloves are the Aldi 'biking' gloves from the recent sale.

    get your hands warm before you go out, and put your gloves on for a minute or two and clap them a bit. they will stay warmer for longer.

    Keeping your arms helps too.

    I did actually think about sticking all my kit in th etumble dryer before putting it on...but then I read the labels which for the most part forbid such wimpish cop out behaviour

    Thanks.:rolleyes:..they look great but at £90 I'd need them not only to keep me toastie but to make my toast as well:biggrin:.
    I cant afford that kind of cash. Thanks for the link though.

    It's always best to have arms. :rolleyes: Makes the hands easier to find at the end of them.

    Silk or Merino wool, any decent motorbike shop will have some and probably cheaper than the cycling equivalent.
    If it doesn't interfere with using the brakes and changing gear, mitts are warmer than gloves, your fingers keep each other warm.

    What about thinsulate skiing gloves? I've used a pair off and on over the years, and because they're windproof they're much better at keeping fingers warm. ISTR they cost me about £15 in the dim and distant past.

    I use a pair of thin woolen glove liners from 'Blacks' which cost about £6. Wear them under my winter cycling gloves and my fingers have been so far pretty warm.

    When I was 17 and had a m/bike, my hands used to freeze in the winter, until..... I found a pair of my Moms 60's silk cocktail gloves that went nearly up to your elbow !!!

    I tell ya, underneath my leather biking gloves my hands were as warm as toast !

    Hope Mom never sees this, she always wondered what happened to those gloves. :biggrin: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:
