Windproof Your Feet on the Cheap
You’ll either love this or laugh. It’s either smart or ridiculous.
Here’s a little tip I got years back – can’t even remember where. For some reason, I have a difficult time keeping toes and fingers warm in the winter when I don’t dress right. So here’s what I do for feet when it’s below freezing: warming embrocation, thermal socks wrapped in a sandwich baggie, shoe, then booties. Seems like a lot, I know. But when a bike ride feels more like skiing, the extra plastic windproof layer takes the edge off. And I don’t even feel the baggie or the seam in my shoe. Super-nerd or super-resourceful. You make the call.
What do you do for cold feet? Give the sandwich baggies a shot on your next cold ride and let me know if it works for you.
