What to Wear

There is no need to go out and buy special cycling gear – you can ride in your everyday clothes.

Riding in the cold: Wearing layers is the best way to control your body temperature. Gloves and ear warmers are particularly helpful when trying to stay warm.

Riding in the dark or rain: Wear bright clothing as you should make special efforts to see and be seen. Hi-Vis yellow and green are best colors for visibility — you will want to steer clear of dark colors.

If your chain does not have a guard on it, you can keep the chain away from your pants by rolling up your pant leg.
