  • 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.
