All I really need to know is how to keep ONE tiny little part of my body from becoming numb and aching and getting frostbite whilst riding in sub-30 degrees weather. Toesies. Everything else is cool. Torso, head, hands, fingers, knees, etc., all except toes after roundabout an hour start getting numb, even with best booties. What to do? Put a heat pack between booties and shoes? Help.

Place them on top of your shoes over where your toes meet your feet and place booties on top of that. These chemical throw away warmers are only 50 cents a pair at Walmart in the sporting goods section. wear wool or poly thin socks next to skin and one more thin pair of socks wool of synthetic. Too tight socks cut off circulation.
