Clothing is really important to a cyclist. We wouldn’t send someone out to protect our country that’s not prepared with the right gear. We want to protect ourselves from the sun. We want to protect ourselves from injury with a great fitting helmet. So as we do suit up and go for a bike ride.
I want to make 100% sure. I’ve got a properly fitting helmet on that’s well-ventilated and properly fit. To make sure that I do have riding gear – jersey and shorts that are moisture wicking – with the chamois. The moisture wicking material keeps my body dry and helps it breathe better. So as I’m spending energy, I’m keeping myself as cool as I can with that ventilated helmet and the clothing that is also ventilated and keeps my body cool.
Socks or even something that we don’t want to overlook. Moisture wicking socks or allowing the the feet to breathe as well. Gloves that are reinforced with gel pads in the right area is ensuring that we have a good grip on the handlebars.
