What to Wear When You’re Cycling
We’re focusing on your riding wardrobe.
Sometimes it’s hot, cold, rainy and windy. However, when riding a bike, all you know is that you just want to be comfortable.
Corey checks in with the manager of Salisbury Cycle, Rory Payne, to teach you how you can make that happen.
Rory gives us examples of what you can wear while cycling in different weather conditions:
- 65+ degrees: Short sleeved jersey; shorts; short finger gloves; ankle socks
- 60-65 degrees: Add arm warmers; full finger gloves
- 55-60 degrees: Add knee warmers or knickers; thicker socks (a layer you can shed)
- 50-55 degrees: Go for the full leg warmers; add a vest outer layer
- 45-50 degrees: Opt for thicker gloves; long sleeved jersey; add toe covers; sock layer and ear warmers perhaps
Rory says to be creative.
“A general rule to follow is a compression base layer, a cotton or fleece mid layer with a windproof outer layer,” Rory says. “A combination of this guide, and your own personal trial and error, can ensure the most comfortable ride no matter what the season.”
