Sods Law – Coldest Day and Heated Gloves Broke

It’s -4°C here in London this morning. Not that bad, but unheard of in London. And this morning my Gerbings heated gloves go on the blink. Right hand stopped working. Left hand fine, but my right hand fingers went numb after just a couple of miles. 🙁

Must be a loose connection in wiring, as it started working again for half the journey home. Have swapped gloves over and it does appear to be the controller and/or wiring rather than the gloves themselves. Thankfully this part has a 3 year warranty. Must sort out a replacement prompt. Numb fingers are bad, painful, distracting and affect my riding. In the city where up most concentration is required at all time, this is a dangerous combo.
