After last weekend's ride in just about 2°C air temperature I knew I needed a new pair of more winter season gloves.
Santa unfortunately doesn't come to me anymore so it was left to Mastercard to get involved.
We dropped into Laguna and after choosing a glove I thought might fit the bill but on the way to see if they had my size, I saw the "sale" bin. The still came in at over a £100.
In there we some Dainese gloves. Part leather part fabric. I tried a pair on and like Goldilocks one pair too big. One pair too small but the next pair. Just right.
You simply know. The fit was so "easy". Natural I suppose you could say.
I've worn them about the house and tomorrow if the weather isn't too wintry they'll get the first outing.
Didn't get to try them out. At 2°C and frosty road and car iced I decided not to risk it.
Felt a bit guilty until on the back road I witnessed a cyclist slide off on an ice patch. That made me feel vindicated.
