To Glove or Not to Glove?

I've discovered something about gloves with regard to my hands. This may not apply to your hands.

When I don't wear gloves, my hands feel sore. When I wear some gloves, my hands get tingly and numb. I think this is due to either the gloves constricting my hand or the padding cutting off blood flow or maybe they pinch a nerve. My current short-fingered gloves have gel padding. When I wear these, my hands get tingly and numb. That's pretty ironic isn't it? Gel padded gloves are supposed to help my hands feel better. They are good for absorbing road shock, but something about them is not right for me.

When I wear my long-fingered, cool-weather gloves that are not padded, my hands feel fine.

I'm going to buy a pair of too large, lightly padded gloves. I'll report back so frequently that you'll want to quit reading my blog.

Thanks for your suggestions on gloves. I'm still listening.

You should just grow a pair and start unicycling everywhere.

I'll bring you some of the moose foreskin I've been using this summer: never numb and always fun!
