Essential Fall Cycling Wear

Despite longer darker days, some drawbacks to cycling are the changing weather patterns. Dressing for cooler autumn days can be a little tricky when it comes to rain and a biting chill, especially when we've been riding after a few minutes and start to feel too hot.

With a few pieces in your autumn kit, you can ride between 'too hot' and 'too cold' smoothly with these essentials.

Staying Healthy On Your Bike This Autumn

Although fall is a lovely time of year to get the most out of your rides just before winter, with seasonal changes comes early sunsets and colder climates. With longer darker days fatigue, seasonal sads, and lack of exercise tend to come as we start to hide indoors from the cold. Getting on your bike through fall has its obvious reasons for keeping fit throughout the season, it's also a great way to combat the seasonal affective disorder (SAD) and the coming winter blues. If you're feeling the side affects of time changes, it can be difficult to get a regular routine on your bike but once you do it, it's all joy from there.

If you're looking for motivation and tips to stay on your bike and smiling, here are some ways to keep you on your bike and healthy during the seasons too.

Going The Distance

We stepped out for a weekend ride thinking a local trail would make for pleasant riding but were meet with some serious elevation along the trail. Unexpectedly, the route planned had us heading straight for the hills. Down the road we twist and turn our way towards the first climb of the day. It seemed short but after only a few kilometers, we started to grind our teeth. Charging up, we put a halt to our conversation of honeymoon travel while panting and focusing on each breath and pedal.
