Bike Gallery Spring Kit Style×

Spring! At last some warm weather has started! Good riddance Winter! The beginning of the season however can be a challenging time for choosing what kit to wear in the morning. Do I dress for now? What about when the weather warms up in an hour? Will I be too hot? I don’t want to be too cold!

 

Cycling kit preferences are different for anybody who rides a bike. Some people feel the cold more so than others, yet there are some really good ways to make sure you are comfortable for the duration of your ride.

 

LAYER UP

 

Layering is the ideal solution for a cool Spring morning. A great way to conquer this issue is through the use of a quality base layer with the addition of a lightweight gilet or jacket. These outer can easily be stowed away when it begins to warm up. Bike Gallery stocks MAAP, Pedla and Q36.5 which all offer great products that are ideal for layering.

VERSATILE GARMENTS

 

Cycling clothing that can be worn in a wide variety of conditions are pivotal for maintaining good body temperature during Spring. These garments are achieved through the use of technical fabrics that focus of high breathability and protection from the elements.
