Competitively Priced Bike Clothing for Enthusiasts

By Morgan Cole Subscribe to RSS | January 24th 2012 | Views:

Not so long ago, if you wanted to buy new jerseys, tights and other garments that were suitable for long distance cycling, there were relatively few places that stocked a good selection from the leading brand names. However, the explosive growth of Internet retail outlets over the last decade has made it much easier for people to find exactly what they need, no matter where they happen to live. Whilst ordering online means that you will incur a postage fee, prices are often lower than those to be found in physical stores.

A good pair of cycling shoes is a vital piece of kit for anybody that takes their biking activities seriously and fully lined boots can help to keep feet warm in the winter. Footwear that features high performance membranes such as GORE-TEX® is ideal as, although it is water repellent, it allows your feet to breathe. Waterproof tights and jerseys help to ensure that a summer shower does not leave you soaked to the skin, making them a must-have part of any enthusiastic cyclist’s wardrobe. Bike clothing includes many other items, some of which you may need for everyday cycling and some of which may only be necessary for those who cycle all year round, come rain, snow or shine.

A base layer is basically an undershirt, designed for cyclists who take a layered approach to their apparel and these come in both long and short-sleeved varieties. Anti odour technology is a feature of good quality pieces and enables competitive cyclists to work up a sweat and still enjoy a relaxing drink in a café on the way home, without offending the other customers. The advantage of the layered approach is that it is possible to add and remove items of clothing as the temperature rises and falls and as your work rate increases or decreases throughout the day.

Protective cycle helmets are worn by most sensible cyclists and many choose to wear gloves that offer protection from the elements, especially during the colder months. A good selection of all the garments and protective gear mentioned in this article can be found for sale online and good stores offer their customers a refund or exchange for any items that are found to be the wrong size once they arrive.
