Cycle to work looks good until you factor in the fact that if you're after a new bike and time it right, you can usually buy last years model at a discount that's as good as the cycle to work scheme would offer. Without the paperwork, requirement to stay in the same job or the uncertainty about when the bike is actually yours. C2W was dreamed up by a committee of tax accountants with no idea how it would work in the real world. Taking vat off new bikes would have been much simpler.

Not tried them in the rain, but at least my fingers weren't white when I got into school this morning.

Is that the new type (on sale about a month back) or the old style ones that they have been selling for about 5 years now?

As you said though, for less than £5 you can't really grumble.

Well, I'm grumbling. I've added these to the 'cheap-and-not-very-good' drawer chock full of gloves which are cheap and not very good. When will I learn.

I quite like my gloves, they are very good warm and water proof, got them for about £10 on ebay....These ones: Fox Gloves Not water proof as standard but I had a tin of spray on teflon which works really well
