The fun stops when your fingers and toes get cold. The best solution I've found is to put my feet into produce baggies before pulling my socks on, and putting on examining gloves before my winter gloves. This is because no matter how cold it gets, you perspire, though you may not perceive it. The greatest heat loss is through evaporation. The baggies and examining gloves create a vapor barrier. Except on the coldest days I find that with these I only need thin wool socks and wool gloves with those rubber dots for a good grip. My toes are not cramped, and I can handle the controls more easily with the thin gloves. Fingers and toes are toasty. You might think the perspiration build-up would be clammy. Not so. You won't even perceive there is moisture until your ride is finished and you pull off the baggies and examining gloves. Then you'll be surprised just how much you did perspire. Also your socks and gloves will be dry.
