No piece of cool-weather cycling kit is more important for fall and spring spinning than gloves. But not just any gloves. The right gloves. Pearl Izumi's Escape Thermal Women's Gloves are an excellent case in point, blending warmth, comfort, and function in an updated take on the classic knit gloves. While the Escape Thermal Gloves provide a bit more insulation than the knit gloves of yore, we do find that they fill a similar role in our cycling kit bags. The gloves' Select Thermal fabric outdoes its wool predecessors by pulling moisture from your skin and then diffusing it across the material's surface for fast evaporation. This keeps your shoulder-season fingers drier, which means they stay warmer. The insulation is also ideal in the late-fall temperatures where lightweight liners are inadequate but full-blown winter gloves leave your hands a clammy, sweaty mess. Pearl finishes the gloves with a few functional details that help you adapt to the gloved life after a summer spent riding glove-free. The index finger and thumb terminate in synthetic, conductive leather, so you'll be able to document the farmer's market gourds or countryside fall foliage with your smart phone camera, and reflective elements help keep you visible to motorists as dusk begins falling earlier and earlier.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
