Numbness in feet/hands and Heart rate question

I am trying to figure out how to alleviate the numbness in my hands and feet on longer rides (30 miles+) Any help would be great.

Also, I ride with my girlfriends father who is 61 and watches his heart rate closely. He is always adjusting his program to whatever the latest "Know it all" fitness guru says. He rides 18 miles 5 days per week for the last 8 years, so he is relatively in shape cardio wise. He wants to keep his heart strong and better his health. Any great reference sites would be appreciated

    dont have the shoes too tight. feet swell up a little with exercise and they become tighter ie after setting off.

    Hands - Get some mitts with padding, something like Specialised BG Mitts
