Wolvhammer Winter Cycling Shoes
Never miss a local story.
It’s a lament you hear cyclists – both and mountain – make every winter: Oh, my feet are so cold. No matter what type of bulky, clipped-in cyclist shoe they try, the cold pervades. If you have the money and the intense desire for metacarpal warmth, try 45Nrth’s new shoe for fat tire cycling (a form of mountain biking, not a swipe at body shape of cyclists). It’s more like a mountaineering boot, featuring thick leather uppers, a gusseted tongue, ballistic nylon shell, aerogel in the footbed and thick Vibram heels. It’s made for cycling in snow, but a Sacramento morning might be suitable for it as well.
Fisherman’s Float Tube
They say fishing is relaxing. Well, in this float tube by the Creek Co., you might feel so comfy that you’ll doze off. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. The ODC 420 Lightweight Combo is said to be easy to inflate, has larger storage pockets and, of course, drink holders. There are side storage pockets to hold gear (or extra beer) and the all-important “thick foam seat.”
