Riding in the fall doesn't necessarily require a lot of extra gear. It's actually pretty easy to overdress for a fall cycling ride. So we're here to tell you what you need to wear when the temperature starts to dip. We're going to be talking about what to wear when the temperature is in the 50 to 60 degree range.
A long sleeved jersey or a short-sleeved jersey with arm warmers will keep you warm enough without the risk of overheating once you get your body temperature up a bit. The Endura Long Sleeve XTract Jersey is great for those chillier mornings when you don't expect the temperature to rise too much or you're not planning to ride too hard. If the temperature will be rising as your ride goes along, you may want to start out with arm warmers that can easily be removed as you get warmer.
When it comes to your legs, leg warmers are a good choice when temperatures are in the 50 to 60 degree range. As with arm warmers, leg warmers can be removed if the temperature rises. Some riders may be more comfortable wearing tights when the temperature is in the low 50s. Endura Thermolite Tights are a good choice when leg warmers aren't enough to keep you comfortable.
Don't forget about your hands. As you know, it's always a good idea to wear gloves when you're riding. A nice, lightweight pair of full finger gloves will keep your hands warm, while still giving you enough control of your bike. Check out our Endura Windchill Gloves.
And finally, a good pair of moisture wicking socks can keep your feet warm, toasty and most importantly, dry. Our Endura Retro socks are a fun choice.
This gear should keep you comfortable throughout the month of October and into November. Once the temperature starts to dip into the 40s, we'll get you up to speed on our latest caps, shoe covers and jackets. But for now, just add a couple of thin layers and you'll be all set!
