Re: Project: STAY WARM

A few years ago, when I was doing some road biking, my hands would get cold even in gloves. Feet are even worse on a bike when it's down around 30F. One of the tech guys in the bike shop suggested just concentrating on loosening up the tension in arms and hands. Seems like a no-brainer but it really worked. It seems that you don't even notice gripping the handlebars (wheel) too tight and that consciously shaking out arms and hands every once in a while keeps the blood flowing/hands warmer.
