If you do suffer that badly I'd suggest investing in some winter motorcycling gloves. I've had a pair of really goof Frank Thomas gloves for almost 20 years now and they are amazing in extremely cold temperatures. Don't expect them top be cheap though.

Ah, no, I meant regular insulated gloves over your hands (as normal), and a windproof layer over the whole lot. I have tried it the wrong way round, marigolds next to the skin, then covered with gloves, and it was as horrendous as it sounds.

I wear 661 Comp gloves normally but in the winter put a thin wooly gloves under them seems to-do the trick.
I got some Aldi SPD shoes a while ago and I am finding them not great when clipped in getting pain in the front of my left foot when cycling, I did a 40 minute turbo session last night unclipped (I have flat/spd pedals) and they felt OK. Not sure how other people are getting on with them? if you have them.

I find that a technical walking glove seems to perform well at the warmer temperature and then I change to the Aldi gloves when cold. I have cycled when the temperature registered as -9.
