It's 7.30am.
It's cold.
I have work.

BUT, it's a beatuiful crisp morning.
The air feels fresh, and wakes me up.
The roads are quiet, and there are very few clouds in the air.

Everywhere is glistening, and all is quiet and still.
I get to ride in to work, and watch a stunning sunrise!
I am wrapped up warm, so I don't feel the cold.

I don't know what you are all complaining about! :D

I wear a pair of thermal gloves under my normal winter gloves, which takes most the bite out.
I have also got in to the habbit of warming my gloves on the radiator before I leave.

Heating them first makes a huge difference. Gloves are insulating, they do NOT generate heat. They can hold heat in however, which means if they start cold, they will remain colder if not get colder. If they start warm, then they should stay warm, or at least get slightly less cold whilst riding.

Nice tip, i've got some glove liners and will try that radiator thing!
