Day 223: Cycling attire

            • Black T: Gap
            • Black cropped trousers: Marks and Spencer
            • Grey hoodie: Marks and Spencer
            • Trainers: Gola

I went on a long bike ride today but after last week I avoided the hills and stuck to the canal towpath.

It is about time I blogged my cycling clothes even though they are far from stylish. I of course, haven't been able to buy any outfits just for cycling so my attire is cobbled together from clothes I already have and usually wear to the gym. I have two requisites for choosing cycling clothes and that is comfort and weather appropriateness. I tend to alternate between pairs of leggings and these trackies and various T shirts and hooded tops. The weather is very mixed at the moment, sunny periods, windy and showery so I always wear layers and carry a cagoule. The wind I find problematic as I am prone to earache in a gale so I have a windproof headband under my helmet. And the helmut is a must and has very cute hints of pink!

  1. I like your cycling attire! I have a hodgepodge of athletic wear too, but I just don't use it enough to justify buying really nice stuff. Ah well!
