Gloves & Mits

The most obvious reason many cyclists wear bike gloves is to keep their hands warm.  For cool weather riding, glove choices can range from regular bike gloves that just help break the wind, to glove liners that help add layers.  For extremely cold weather riding there are thermal gloves which still allow you to grip the handlebars and work the brakes and gear shifters like normal. What do most people do as they start to fall?  They put their hands out to try and catch themselves, to break their impact as they hit the ground.  A pair of bike gloves can give you the protection you need to save your hands and keep the gravel and grit out of your hands and on the street where it belongs.
