There’s been lots of layering talk so far, and that’s for a good reason: base layers are a super important part of staying dry, warm, and comfortable! If you sweat into a cotton base layer, you’re bound to stay wet and cold all day. Instead, reach for insulated layers for laid-back rides or merino for more active rides. That’s what keeps you on track for more fun when you ride.
BOOTS & GLOVES
It goes without saying that warm, comfy, durable boots with strong ankle support are a must — nobody likes riding all day with wet socks or sore ankles.
For gloves, it’s all about taking the time to find your fit. If you’re going for a quick spin in the harsh cold, look for lots of insulation. And if you’re an active rider who expects to sweat, light insulation is best with a strong grip for that close handlebar feel.
