Aldi Gloves - Not impressed TBH, Not very water proof and not very warm BUT not bad for <£5 I suppose
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.
It does have it's issues.
The older ones I thought were fine and required waterproofing every now and again, but not had chance to try the new ones in the wet yet.
As you said though, for less than £5 you can't really grumble.
The new ones, just soaked up the rain last week.
it was -.4c according to the computer thismorning. My gloves a Lidl full finger onse. Not realy tried int eh rain yet to any big degree.
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
Aldi have got more bike specials coming at the end of the month:
This looks wheely cool....
