Cold hands can make it harder to brake suddenly in an emergency, and bugs or pebbles hitting your bare hands may cause you to flinch--extremely dangerous when traveling at speed. A sturdy pair of gloves won't just keep you warm: they will also help you in the event of an accident, providing wrist support and abrasion protection. There are many styles available -- fingerless gloves, gauntlet gloves, full-finger gloves, and non-leather workman's gloves. Some gloves are lined, some not lined. Click here for Women's Gloves.
