You could also just get a vest and use Hippo Hands. back in the 60s & 70s (before any electrics were available), I used a lap robe and Hippo Hands. A vest or jacket would have been a Godsend.
Are gonna get all technical now?

In non-technical news, my knee pain is from a swollen bursar sac - no real damage done, I am feeling much better now thank you very much for asking. When you are young, you don't give a shit about bursar sacs. But the older you get, the more you have to worry....

Heated gear is expensive and complicated. Just do what I did and move to the desert. It has only snowed here once this year, and right now the temperature is around 75F.

Oh and yesterday I went mountain biking up in the hills. At times I was carrying my bike through 6" of snow in shorts and a t-shirt.

The highest I saw last year in July was about 106F. This ain't no Phoenix. High desert is the best desert.

Just go ahead and rub it in high desert boy......

It broke 40 by the time of my evening commute (not far) but it felt warm to me, as sick as that is....

OH BABY ... Desert Spring is Unbeatable.

Close To,

"knee joint is surrounded by fluid-filled sacs called bursae"

When they become inflamed, you have bursitis.

When I had my knee replaced, the doc told me that I had chunks of bone stuck to the bursa on the back of the patella. He said if I'd waited much longer, I'd have lost the knee.

That is why I ride by on my way going to/from Texas, Last year going through 70's once I got on top of the plain. Too bad it started to rain and did not let up until I was almost into Apache Junction. 300 miles of rain.
