With the recent Nor’easter, it’s a good time to think about how to stay warm. Your bike is equipped for all types of conditions, here are a few tips for keeping your body equally snug and secure:
- Warm arms: Rain jackets will keep you dry, but many cyclists turn to arm warmers to keep warm. They fit comfortably below outer layers, and you can wear or remove them as your activity changes with your temperature.
- Layered legs: Your bike shorts or commuting clothing often needs extra warmth with the wind. Leg warmers resolve that challenge easily, especially for longer rides.
- Dry toes: Consider investing in a good pair of booties. The name is weird, but socks and shoes that survive a downpour will keep you quite cheerful.
Be warm. Be dry. Enjoy autumn cycling.
