If you are finding the cold weather is taking some of the fun out of cycling then here’s a selection of cycling gear that promises to keep your body temperature at a comfortable level, no matter how low the temperature gage drops.
DHB Windtex Skull Cap
At £19.99 this is a good buy from Wiggle. Especially useful for cyclists who wear a helmet and a traditional cap may not fit particularly well.
DeFeet Arm Warmers
A particularly comfortable set of arm warmers by DeFeet. They combine good breathability with warmth and don’t restrict movement. £15.29 Wiggle.
Pro New Classic Overshoes
If the problem lies in cold and wet feet then these overshoes will be well appreciated. Just don’t forget to remove them when you walk around as like all overshoes they can be easily worn out. £22.00 Chain Reaction Cycles.
Surface Crew Sock Herringbone
Also helpful in the battle to keep your feet warm, these socks by Surface Crew do an excellent job at maintaining warmth. £8.99 Wiggle.
DHB Race Roubaix Knee Warmers
Reflective and warm – these are the knee warmers I use on the rides that get particularly chilly. £16.99 from Wiggle.
Endura Deluge Winter Gloves
The Endura Deluge gloves are very well priced at £24.99. They offer extra waterproofing and impressive warmth. These gloves will soon be irreplaceable on any winter rides.
DHB Signal Jacket
The DHB Signal jacket packs down to a neat size and offers excellent rain protection. A great jacket to keep in your bag in case the weather turns nasty. £41.99 Wiggle.
