Today I saw an excellent example of exactly how you should cycle in the winter months. Not only was it dark and gloomy it was also very foggy, and this person was cycling along, wearing a black jacket and black pair of trousers with the most pathetic red rear light. This dangerous combination meant I couldn’t see the cyclist until I was right on top of them! If they made it home safely, it would be a miracle…
This unique and versatile backpack has been specifically designed for Apple products (don’t worry, other products won’t spontaneously combust if you put them in there). It can be worn in two ways, either over the shoulders like a regular back pack (ideal for cycling) or as a tote bag (Ideal for toting).
The Aero Jersey from the ‘Pro Team collection’ has some bold new branding that riders will either love or hate - a bold, raised rubber Rapha takes up the entire length of the left arm, there are six stripes on the back right pocket, and a smaller Rapha and stripes either side of the zip at the hem. If you don’t fancy flashing the branding about, you can order the Aero in Black, but the two other coloured options - Grey Blue and Dark Green - are very attractive.
When you need a little protection in the unpredictable weather, but don’t want to be bogged down with bulky gear that you might want to remove after your initial warm up, the packable wind gilet from Rapha’s Pro Team range is could be exactly what you need. Available in four colours, Black, Grey Blue, Bright Orange and Hi-Vis Pink, this ultra-lightweight Gilet is a thin but tough outer layer that can be used all year round, during warm ups, cool downs, early starts and moving into cooler evenings as soon as the sun drops.
The Brevet Winter Tights are designed for winter riding, offering maximum comfort and insulation in cold conditions.
