Do you have any tips for choosing cycling gear?
Well, that is a matter of personal preference really, and the clothes that you wear will depend on the conditions that you usually cycle in. It is important to dress to the climate, with lighter gear being more suitable for warm summer bike rides. Remember that your body will not give you peak performance if you are cold, and cold weather means that blood will rush from your extremities to the core.
This could result in stiff muscles and greater difficulty in maintaining speed and stamina. In winter, we recommend layering up, with a base layer, mid-layer, and outer layer, so that you can remove and apply layers as necessary, which will help to ensure that you can always maintain optimum temperature. We also recommend wearing sunglasses while you are cycling, in most weather conditions. This will not only enhance your vision, but it can also help to keep wind, rain and road from getting into your eyes. Choose clothes that have breathability and are moisture-wicking to ensure that you are comfortable throughout your journey.
Moisture-wicking refers to a feature of some materials that are used to create clothing and can pull or �wick', moisture from the skin to the outer layers of the material. This then allows moisture to evaporate faster. By preventing a build-up of sweat, this will help to keep you more comfortable when exercising or doing outdoor activities. If you often cycle at night, we recommend wearing bright colours or a high-vis jacket. This is not in replacement of your bike safety lights, but it will add further visibility.
How should I wash my cycling clothes?
Well, that depends on which of our excellent cycling garments you have chosen, and we always recommend reading the manufacturer's instructions thoroughly before you begin. Caring for your cycling kit properly is essential, and it will help to ensure that your cycling clothes maintain their performance for longer. Wash your clothes on a delicate cycle, and wash them separately from your everyday washing. When you wash your cycling gear, fasten any zippers or pockets and turn jackets or tees inside out. Use a mild laundry detergent, stay away from fabric conditioner, and do not tumble dry. Hang outside to dry, away from direct sunlight, and ensure that they have been dried thoroughly before storage.
