How to ride into autumn
Now that summer has faded into autumn, we’ve put together some smart kit ideas to keep you cosy as you face the elements…
Sportful No-Rain Arm and Leg Warmers
Wiggle Price Arm Warmers £22.10 (RRP £26.00) and Leg Warmers £31.45 (RRP £37.00)
Why fret about short sleeves versus long or short, or shorts versus tights, when you can have the best of both worlds? Sportful’s No-Rain arm and leg warmers are fleecy and snug, with a water-repellant coating that comes in very handy on autumn’s all-to-familiar soggy days.
dhb Toe Covers
Wiggle Price £7.65 (RRP £9.00)
For those gently moist days or chilly morning commutes, toe covers offer a great halfway house to a full overshoe, without the associated faff.
Castelli Thermo Head Thingy
Wiggle Price £18.70 (RRP £22.00)
Yes, it’s strongly reminiscent of a certain other popular piece of versatile headwear, but there’s no overstating how useful one of these ‘neck-tube’ things can be for cycling. You can wear it as a scarf, a bandana or even a hat – the choice is yours.
