My winter cycling kit breakdown


Giro Savant helmet


Buff x2

neck from 5/6 deg, head from 3/4

Aldi oranged tinted sports glasses


Altura Etape GIllet

up to about 11deg

Aldi winter long sleeve cycling top

This fella sees me ritgh though from Autumn to spring, it is the keystone to the whole outfit

Helly Hanson LS baselayer

From 7 deg and below

Trespass Cruzado Gloves

Tresspass  |  £19.99

I do have a pair of winter gloves from Aldi which could take me down to temperatures of -2 deg C but they've seen two many uses and the washing machine has dimished their capabilities so they are only good down to about 6 deg c.

Aldi cycling shorts

Including the all important Hob Nob pocket

B'Twin Bibshorts 500

Wear them all year round, even have a pair of 3/4 lengths

Castelli Thermal bibtights

Still soldering on from the winter of 1995/96 these retro classics do not have an inbuilt pad so I have to wear with bibshorts. Upper temperature limit 13 deg, start to consider 3/4 bibshorts from about 9 deg c

Defeet Woolie Boolie 2 Socks

An new edition to my wardrobe, these fellas are warm, quick drying and comfortable

Shimano AM41 shoes

Now 4years old, I've worn the sole away around the pins of my flat pedals and the sole is starting to break away from the upper.
