People often look at bike commuters in cold-weather climates like they’re crazy, but cyclists quickly learn that it doesn’t take long to warm up. Most of the time, the ride is much more pleasant than standing to wait for a bus or a train. Cyclists also learn that well-ventilated shoes designed for the summer are a major liability in the cold. The rest of your body may be toasty, but it’s tough to keep your feet warm without some help. Of course, if you have a pair of Gore C5 Windstopper Insulated Overshoes, you’ll be smiling on the whole ride. These booties that go over your shoes are both windproof and water-resistant. The PrimaLoft insulation does wonders to keep your feet warm without feeling too bulky. A full-length zipper makes them easy to take on and off, and a velcro strap on the sole lets you dial in a perfect fit.

Even if you’re not a bike commuter, you’ll find these overshoes can extend your cycling season—that sunny day in January might be a good day for a bike ride after all.

By the time you pack away off-season storage, bikes, mowers, shovels, rakes, and tools, there’s hardly any room left for the car. If your garage is feeling cramped, these heavy-duty hooks are the perfect way to go vertical and increase your storage space.

As we pedaled our bikes over the rolling hills of Kentucky, I could practically taste the bourbon. There'd be a glass waiting for us at the end of the ride, of course - two fingers of whiskey, with a single ice cube. But being surrounded by the raw ingredients had the flavor tickling my tongue. Fields of corn beginning to brown in the August sun. Clear water trickling down limestone cliffs ...
