Ride Magazine Subscription

Ride magazineThe first issue of my Ride magazine subscription arrived today. Excellent Christmas present from my wife. I had picked up the odd issue previously and found it a very good read, with loads of great articles. Not just reviews or new bikes I can’t afford, but decent riding tips, maintenance info etc.

This month they have several pages dedicated to bike security to help prevent theft. The subscription also had a free gift, some Oxford heated grips, potentially very useful. Not sure I’ll use them myself since I have heated gloves. However my wife is keen to get her own bike and fancies them for that… 🙂

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.

Read and watch videos about the lessons I’ve learnt, tips I’ve picked up, reviews of my kit and stories of amazing rides around the globe.
