Do you wear gloves to cycle? Do your hands still get sore? Read on!

Hi Everyone,

Another interesting research study that you might be interested in. It's a short survey on how effective your cycling gloves are (I've done it and it took less than 10 minutes). Please think about doing the survey as it's helps the world of research move forward! Link at the bottom or here.




Research study: Do cycling gloves help prevent handlebar palsy?

Dear All,

We are researchers from the Department of Bioengineering at Imperial College London and we are looking for professional or recreational cyclists above the age of 18 to participate in a research study examining the effectiveness of cycling gloves in preventing handlebar palsy.   

Participants are asked to complete a questionnaire about their personal experiences in cycling. Further information is provided through an information sheet on the online platform. This also includes a section asking for consent to participate. The questionnaire will take approximately 15 minutes to complete and is available via the url link below.

To obtain more information about this study, or if you would prefer to complete the survey on paper, please contact either Chaeyoung Chang ( or me ( This study has been reviewed by, and received approval from Joint Research Compliance Office (JRCO).

Best regards,

Angela Kedgley

Done - and it really does only take 10mins!

I like that Windrush is the triclub of research at the moment! My thumb actually went so numb on Sunday that I had difficulty breaking/changing gear and this was first time that had happened to me 

Yep! It's all about supporting research! I also had a bit of a freak moment when my hand went numb and I couldn't change gear for a few seconds.
