Wear Your Heart on Your Sleeve…Or Hand Rather with this Handwarmer!

Heart Handwarmers

Sometimes wearing gloves is not enough to keep your hands warm while riding your bike in colder weather. We came across these adorable handwarmers in shape of a heart. Prevent those chilly hands this winter with these mini heart hand warmers. Simply click the discs inside the heart to start the reaction and you will have instant heat for around half an hour. The handwarmers are also reusable. We had to add them to Eleanor’s bicycle commuter gift set for 2012.

Times Bestselling Author Katie Dailey’s Guide to Owning and Riding a Bicycle

“Heels on Wheels: A Lady’s Guide to Owning and Riding a Bike.” By Katie Dailey. 96 pp. Hardie Grant. $14.95.

Came across this New York Times review of a new book called Heels on Wheels by Katie Daily. According to the article by Liesl Schillinger, “Ms. Dailey offers tips to help would-be pedal-commuters “incorporate cycling into your lifestyle”: don’t wear gummy lip gloss, lest flies get stuck in your pout as you whoosh across bridges; keep wet-wipes at your desk to deal with grease smudges; wear sneakers without laces when possible. She also celebrates the variety and velocity of today’s stylish, eco-conscious cyclists.”

Also in the article, Liesl Schillinger mentions stylish Vespertine reflective bicycle vests we carry at Eleanor’s.
