Are you somebody who regularly heads out of the gates on your racing cycle for a high-speed exploration of the Belgian roadways? Whether you’re a cycling tourist or a professional, these tips will help you pick out the right cycling outfit:
✓ Make sure to opt for aerodynamic, lightweight materials.
✓ Make sure that your base layer fits snugly (depending on the temperatures, you can opt for a thinner or thicker base layer).
✓ Wear a cycling jersey with removable sleeves in cooler temperatures.
✓ Always opt for pants with bib straps – these stay in place better – and a good chamois pad.
✓ Opt for special racing shoes that are aerodynamically designed and have good closures so that you are able to push and pull on the pedals well.
✓ Wear overshoes if rain is in the forecast.
✓ Wear lined, windproof gloves. This not only protects you from the cold, but from injuries if you fall.
