Toes freezing on the bike

How do I keep them warm?

I think I need a bigger pair of bike shoes to get all these base layers on. I'm liking the idea of thick socks over the top of the shoe though and cutting a hole round the cleats.  Then neoprene over the top of those sounds cosy.

But I'm hoping spring is round the corner.

Ges - I wear skiing gloves, £2.50 from Lidl last year, kids size so snug fitting works a treat.

My hands don't get cold at all, it's just my feet.

Don't laugh at the bigger bike shoes... commuter colleagues do that!

Doesn't matter if it's summer or winter for me - think my feet get cold 'cos their 'still' (oh yikes have I said something wrong... do proper cyclists move their feet?). Oh what a beautiful morning! Hope you're all heading out now.

I'm going to the (newish) Tri 'outlet' shop, who knows there might be a whole 60p off some nice things.

Yes I really did write 'their' instead of 'they're' (I'll suffer for that). Was still thinking of the 'human element'... colleagues.

Much better today. Toes felt slightly numb but not as cold as they have been. One pair of cycling socks, one pair of the Hobbit's ski socks and neoprene overshoes. 

Think the numbness might have been due to the thickness of the socks in the shoes, so will try several pairs of thinner socks next time.
