If you keep your hands moving, the less you feel the cold.

Plus, may sound silly, but I try and keep my hands as dry as possible for as long as I can, dont get so cold so quickly then.

This may sound stupid but the secret to warm hands is warm arms. Make sure your body is warm enough and keep moving.  I had cold hands today until the race started and then eveything went toasty!

Otherwise the Rooster Winter gloves are well worth a look.
