I wimped out

I heard that others rode this weekend...I couldn't bear it. The mercury was -7C and in Vancouver that feels colder with the humidity. I pictured my fingers in rigamortis and knew that I would not make it. Frozen snot I am sure...The trouble is my hands are small...really small and to find a glove that fits has been impossible. I make due with the ends flapping a bit... I can use pocket warmers...but it is my finger tips that turn to ice within moments of leaving our neighbourhood. I see the benefit of heated grips or hippo hands...and then I could say I braved real cold. In the meantime I await the warming so I can ride in December.
