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…
