Guide to all weather riding

With cold starts, warm afternoons and unpredictable rain showers; autumn can be a tricky time of year for getting your cycling clothing right. We’ve put together a short guide to help ensure you’re prepared for the season ahead.


WHAT'S IN YOUR POCKET

Use your pocket space wisely. A lightweight wind jacket or gilet takes up little space but makes all the difference when the temperature drops, or in a sudden shower.

When it's too warm for tights and too cool for shorts, knee warmers can be a great addition to pack into your back pocket.


A pair of neoprene gloves are a great addition for riding in wet and cold weather – perfect insulation against biting temperatures thanks to a layer of moisture trapped against the skin which is heated by your own body temperature.

EARLY WARNING

Checking the forecast can make the difference between a good or a bad ride and wearing oversocks will keep out a chill or overshoes will stop the worst of the wet weather.
