4. Wind is your main enemy:
A decent set of windproof gloves that don’t fit too snuggly or restrict your dexterity are best. Don’t get too worked up on waterproof; an insulating glove that still feels warm should it get wet is best.
A neat way of regulating temperature without carrying much extra weight is to wear a light windproof jacket, for those in-between days a gilet version will happily suffice.
This works best when worn with an appropriate cycling-specific base-layer.
5. Keep cosy by wearing a thin under-helmet hat and/or BUFF – bitingly cold ears really are no fun!
