Things That I Can No Longer Live Without #1

Arm Warmers

Basically a lycra tube that fits over your arm from just below the shoulder to your wrist. That's it. Nothing less and nothing more. Who would have thought such a garment would provide me with some of my most comfortable rides ever?  Coming into their own just as that crisp autumnal air makes it's presence felt, the trusty arm warmer becomes so integral to a days ride as tyres. Nothing beats that warm, cozy lower arm feeling. Nothing. I know that may seem strange given a world full of pleasure to be had at every corner, but if it was a choice between a string of dancing girls high on life and Cava or a lycra tube then I at least my arms will be warm as I wave goodbye ladies.
