Winter cycling - what do you need?
Cycling’s a great hobby because you can get on your bike all year round. But when the days get dark, wet and cold, it’s time to make sure you’ve got what you need.
Winter cycling clothing tips
If it's been raining, your feet are going to get covered in cold, wet spray or mud. Overshoes will keep your feet warm and dry.
Cycling base layers and thermals
You want to keep warm on your bike in the winter, but woolly jumpers won't do the trick - they'll just make you sweat. Our range of base layers and thermals are designed to soak up moisture and keep you warm and dry.
If your fingers are freezing, squeezing those brakes and handling corners could prove tricky. Get some cycling gloves to keep your hands warm and improve your efficiency.
Our quality jackets will keep in more heat and keep you dry when the wind is howling and the rain is lashing down. Many jackets are also reflective, so they'll help you be seen on the road. If you're serious about cycling in winter, one of these is a must.
Cycling caps and hats
You lose most of your heat through your head, so it makes sense to get a cap or hat if you're planning on riding in low temperatures. Most winter cycling hats are thin enough to wear under a helmet, so that won't be a problem either.
Cycling glasses and goggles
Rain or road spray is a big problem for cyclists, especially if you're going fast. Get some cycling glasses or goggles to keep your eyes protected and help your visibility.
