Embarking on outdoor winter adventures usually involves some sort of handwear, whether they be gloves, mittens or a fingerless variety of cover-up to keep your hands warm but your fingers free for taking photos. For such occasions, ski gloves can be too bulky and basic mittens aren’t always enough to keep you warm, but a pair of thermal gloves may be just the middle-of-the-road solution.
Known for creating hardcore cycling gear, Pearl Izumi is a well-respected clothing company that sells clothing and accessories for road cyclists, mountain bikers and triathletes. The company’s Thermal Lite line of gloves weigh only 1 pound and cost only $20.
The Thermal Lite gloves can be worn in nearly all climates: They can serve as a layer underneath heavier gloves in extremely cold temperatures, or they can be worn as a lightweight option during slightly warmer weather when you need your dexterity. Lined with a P.R.O. Thermal Lite fabric, they’re warm enough to keep your hands moving, and silicone-screened fingertips allow for optimum grip.
Pearl Izumi products can be purchased on Amazon.com or on the company’s website where they offer free shipping for orders of more than $50.
We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
Barcelona has seen a recent influx of craft cocktails bars within the past five years or so, and Sant Antoni seems to be one of the city’s epicenters of such swanky watering holes. Amid the crisscross streets, organic grocery stores and the soon-to-open, recently renovated Sant Antoni market is Bitter, an inconspicuous cocktail bar where there’s more than meets the eye.
For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
