Fingers almost froze last night biking the home stretch.    20 minutes of riding, the real finger chill started about 10 minutes in, when I started going faster.   Wind chill.  I had on what I consider my warmest gloves.   I’m realizing that my understanding of thermodynamics is reaaaally limited.

The pain of thawing wasn’t fun.   I think I almost got frostbite.  (Of course  I  ‘almost get frostbite ‘ every time I go outside in wintery Chicago).

Talked to some folks about the finger-tip problem.   Recommendations included mitts, and more intra finger space in general.

Maybe if there were some sort of aerodynamic shield I could attach to my bars that would deflect wind…
