So, my Mom gave me an early Christmas gift of Bar Mitts after hearing about how cold my hands have been on the commute. They are mittens that warp around the bike’s handlebars, shielding your hands from the cold. I used them for the first time on this morning’s commute and, for the first time on my winter commute, I can honestly say that my hands were not freezing. There was a tiny bit of cold that seemed to be breaking through but nothing like what I experienced before when I had to keep stopping and warming up my hands because they were so cold. Bar Mitts are one of those inventions that I think – why didn’t I think of that idea – I could have been rich! Doh!!
