It’s wintertime and the temperatures make it hard for riders to find warmth on the roadways. However, with the proper attire, riders can stay safe from the cold throughout the season. There are several different options for winter riding gear.
Some riders choose to wear heated gear. Everything from heated body suits to heated gloves is on the market. Others choose to wear multiple layers with a wind-proof shell. For example, wearing breathable layers underneath a leather layer will provide warmth and protection from the wind. Other items that are winter appropriate are: insulated boots and gloves, a fog-proof helmet and a balaclava.
Frostbite and hypothermia are risks when riding in the cold temperatures, so make sure to bundle up during the winter season!
