In brief: Not likely

Intermittent numbness in hands is usually carpal tunnel (median nerve) or ulnar neuropathy (at the elbow, usually).
I frequently get either or while mountain biking.

In brief: Not a primary sx

Abnormal circulatory issues that can occur with certain dysautonomias could cause intermittent tingling/numbness but there are many more common explanations including nerve entrapments at various areas in the arm, shoulder or neck.
Would see a practitioner for good neurological and vascular examination.
