|Smartwool Blueprint patterned Cycling Socks, Arm & Knee Warmers, Cycle Cap by Gore Bike-Wear|
When cycling your arms and hands are often the first to get cold. Basically they're just along for the ride and unlike your legs, aren't generating much heat. If you don't wear cycling gloves, you might want to rethink that for cooler weather. Depending on the temps, you can choose full fingered or half fingered cycling gloves such as myLeather Pittards by Pearl Izumi. They will protect your hands from road vibrations while keeping them comfortably warm.
Likewise arm and knee warmers are a must on cooler mornings. These shown here are by Smartwool and are made of super soft, non itchy Merino
Wool. They can turn any short sleeved cycling jersey into a warmer long sleeved
version! These really extend your cycling wardrobe. During the ride, if it gets warmer, you can take them off and stuff them in your trunk or panniers. That's something you can't do with a long sleeved cycling jersey. The Blueprint pattern on the Smartwool set is really beautiful so you'll find uses for them for jogging and hiking too.
