WINTER CYCLING GLOVES
Tigo Winter Gloves - suitable for ages 2 - 7 years with easy opening cuff
Polaris Mini Hoolie Gloves - another highly recommended kids size winter cycling glove
Shotgun Pogies - weather proof mittens for smaller children using a front bike seat
ETC Junior Mittens - these kids sized mittens are made specifically for cycling in, so shouldn't get "stuck" like Alex's son's did
Adult Winter cycling gloves - windproof and waterproof is what's needed for winter riding
Alex’s Bar End Mittens - easy to keep track of as they stay on your handlebars - unless your other half doesn't like them!
WINTER CYCLING CLOTHING
Outer Layers for keeping kids warm and dry - having a warm layer and a water proof layer helps with year round usage and stops overheating with one chunky layer
Thermal kids sized cycling leggings - great for keeping legs warm when out on winter bike rides
Thermal underlayers - for keeping warm on and off the bike
Hamax Bike seat poncho - for keeping little ones dry on a bike seat
Front Bike Seat Windshield - weather protection for your child (and you!)
Contigo thermal mug The mug Alex uses to keep his coffee warm on the school run
Camelbak We saw a recommendation on the excellent Family Cycling UK Facebook Group for adding warm drinks to a Camelbak to keep your back and your tummy warm! We've not tried this ourselves, but if you try it out do let us know how you get on (we're not being held responsible for any mishaps on this!)
