Cold-weather apparel tips
There Is No Bad Weather,
Just Bad Clothing
Surprising comfort: Cold weather is
relative, and choosing the proper
riding apparel will mean riding
comfortably all year long.
The actual temperature outside is not the only factor to
consider when deciding what to wear for your ride. You
should also think about how hard you are going to be riding.
A slow cruise warrants thicker layers than a ride where you
will be generating a lot of body heat. As a rule of thumb,
if you walk outside and feel warm in your gear before you
even step on the pedals, you’re probably over dressed. You
should be slightly cold before riding so that you don’t get too
warm during the riding effort.
