Clothing does not have to be cycling specific but bear in mind the following:
  • Clothing should ideally be tight fitting, especially lower legs for safety, but allow freedom of movement
  • Several thin layers are better than 1 thick layer to allow for temperature adjustment during exercise
  • Even if you think its warm you need to keep your muscles warm to prevent Injury, and it can be quite cool in the mornings and evenings even in mid summer
