Some bikers prefer not to wear gloves. After years of riding, your hands will become accustomed to the abuse, and they will toughen up and form callouses. That said, many riders choose to wear biking gloves, especially if they like mountain biking (which is typically more intense than road biking). There are lots of different types of gloves out there – some are expensive and some are pretty cheap. No matter what your budget, style or preferences are, you should have no problem finding the perfect bike gloves for your needs.
