It doesn’t work in every situation and for every individual, but bicycles and electric bikes are going to become a much bigger part of life as we drive less.
Whether you’re using a bike for work, play or just getting around, the right clothes can make the difference between being dry, safe and happy or giving up. I know it puts up the cost, but a helmet is a must (floppy ears optional) and please do get a bright reflective waterproof jacket or over vest and some decent lights. It’s a bit of a hobby horse of mine, but I just think that people on bikes wearing dark clothes with no lights must have a death wish. You can also get some semi-smart trousers and jackets that are water resistant and look good and will shake off all but the heaviest shower. A friend of mine says, there’s no such thing as bad weather, just inappropriate clothing. So let’s get appropriate!
