    I've got some fairly expensive Pearlizumi gloves and have tried x-country ski gloves but from 0 to 20 degrees the finger tips still get cold - very cold !!

    For a winter bike ride of about an hour at 10 degrees, does anyone have a solution for keeping the finger tips warm ??

    Neoprene gloves. WalMart $10.00, in the hunting section.

    Yup. You put these type gloves over your cycling gloves. Also, I can try putting the little warming packs in between the two gloves, on the back side.

    Or, you can do what I do during the winter months. Stay home, eat bonbons and watch Oprah.

    Silk under gloves and goretex ( or similar ) outer gloves .

    ps you didn´t say if that´s centigrade , because 10 C isn´t that cold and even I can cope down to 8 C with out trouble - 10 F is another story .

    Neoprene rocks, great for scuba suits. I do a lot of cold weather plumbing work in late fall and I use a pair that rocks. Great grip.

    Mi Amigo Loco, I love cycling too, but that's tooooo cold. A while ago I went out in the low 30s F and, after a rather fast descent, I discovered my....personality...had all but disappeared. It took a very long & hot bath, and my lovely girlfriend to coax it back out.

    Stay inside, use a trainer/rollers, drink sangrea (sic).
