Do you bicycle tour in the winter? Even if you haven’t worked your way to up an Alaksan adventure in December, these bar mittens are nothing short of luxury for your everyday commute, spring and fall time touring and more.
We’ve long been fans of the bar mitt. Once you become a believer in the bar mitt, you will never stray. Imagine not needing gloves in 30 degree temperatures, instead slipping your hands in these comfy, neoprene mittens, always ready to warm a chilly finger that may have had to stray to check your map.
In honor of Bike-Friendly Parks week and all the unpredictable weather conditions our treasured parks can bring, for today only, make any donation to the U.S. Bicycle Route System and get entered to win a set of these bar mitts. Donate before midnight MST to win >>
