How to dress for bad weather

The weather can be an intimidating factor when you live in a climate that experiences wet, windy, and cold conditions, but as the old adage goes: there’s no such thing as bad weather — only bad gear. We have breathable, robust, and supremely warm apparel that holds its own when Mother Nature shows you her bad side, so you can go from a fair-weather rider to no-matter-the-weather cyclist with warm, dry, protection.

Weave through the wind

Thread up right on days when the gusts are a lot to muster and you’ll find that you can barrel through the breeze with ease. Start with a jacket to take the sting out of harsh wind, but don’t leave your feet and hands out to fend for themselves. Socks, toe covers, and windproof gloves will keep your extremities feeling warmer for longer, so you stay comfortable and protected on the long haul.

Weather the wet

We love to ride, come rain or shine, but it all starts with the right apparel. We looked to some of the wettest cities with the highest bicycle transportation rates to see how they do it. In Amsterdam, Brussels, and Copenhagen, cyclists layer with essential gear to fend off the elements, so they can enjoy spinning through every season, whether or not the weather is wet.

Conquer the cold

Comfort in the year’s chilliest season is about more than just bundling up. A great winter kit is not only warm, but protective and breathable, too. Layer right and avoid fabrics like cotton that soak up water and take ages to dry. Threading up with synthetics, wool, and softshell gear will have your skin feeling dry, warm, and protected even when you perspire, so you stay ready to ride even when the mercury dips into the single digits.

Zip into warmth

Fend off the cold with the rugged Circuit Softshell Jacket that insulates while shielding from cold, wet, and wind.
