Tip O' the Day

Clothing For Cold Weather Cycling - The key to enjoying cold-weather cycling is dressing in layers, a technique that makes it easy to adjust to changes in weather, temperature and wind direction simply by stripping or adding some clothing. Start with a moisture-moving base layer that pulls perspiration away from your skin to keep you dry and warm. Add a long-sleeve jersey to this (what weight to wear depends on the temperature) and top these layers off with a light vest or jacket that can easily be stuffed into a jersey pocket if you warm up. Never make the mistake of riding only in shorts. Sure, your legs are doing a lot of work. But that frigid wind will chill your knees, thighs and ligaments quickly, which slows blood flow and may cause injury. A good rule is to protect your legs whenever it's 60 degrees or colder. Knee and leg warmers are handy because they're easy to put on, take off and carry. Knickers offer knee warmth and look cool. As the mercury drops though, consider full tights for optimum warmth. Please contact us for more specific recommendations. We're here to help.

Why Cycling's The Best Exercise

Click to enlarge!No gym membership is required! Stop making monthly payments to stay in shape at a gym, club or pool. Instead, just ride your bicycle for fun, fitness and transporation. Don't have a bike? You can finance one for less than that membership, and when it's paid off, you'll own your own fitness machine that you can use anytime for free!
