Looks at seal skin gloves a wiggle, the are almost completely waterproof and very warm

slightly more aerodynamic than a brick

Various waterproof options, but even 100% ones like Sealskinz need a woolen liner glove if you feel the cold.

I was told there would be Cake. Luckily there's http://TestValleyCC.org.uk

Merino liners are the key

I've got Specialized long finger gloves for warmer spring/autumn days & SealSkinz Waterproof Winter for the worst weather.

Chucking a pair of SealSkinz Merino liners under either gives you an extra 5C or so of comfort below where they'd usually be useful. Liners are only about a tenner - cracking value

Decathlon do some silk glove liners for £6.99 which are brilliant. Really thin but make a massive difference.

I had exactly the same experience on Saturday, no fun whatsoever.

I've just purchased and ridden home in a pair of Endura Deluges. So far they seem really warm and completely windproof. road.cc say they are totally waterproof. There is some padding, but not so much as to make you feel like you aren't connected to the bars. So far I'd recommend them.

Ride in Oxford? Come and join the Cowley Road Condors cycling club, Oxford's friendliest cycling club!

Altura Shield does it for me. Pink ones were £10 a while back, but they're usually a bit more than that.

As above - Take your pick of winter gloves, but get yourself a pair of merino liners for inside. Work wonders when wet (be that sweat or rain) as they still keep your fingers warm.
