When I triggered a discussion on Twitter in November about bib shorts Velocio reached out to me to see if I would be interested in trying their solution to every women cyclist (and some men too) problem with having to undress to use the toilet when wearing cycling bib shorts. I’m always very happy when I hear about a company thinking about women’s needs when it comes to cycling and so I was keen to give their bib shorts a try. It’s been a few months and I’ve worn them inside on the trainer and out on longer rides. Watch to find out my thoughts on Velocio’s Signature Fly Bib Shorts for women.
I’m a jeans kind of girl, I love them, and when I’m not in cycling kit you’ll likely find me in jeans. I’d been hearing about cycling specific jeans here and there and wondered if it would be worth trying a pair.
I have my favourite go-to jeans that I’ve bought since I was 18. I occasionally try something else but always end up going back to American Eagle jeans in whatever the style of the day is. They are my tried and true jeans. Since they currently make skinny jeans in hi-rise and sky-hi, they also have me covered, literally on the bike. So when I’m out riding around doing errands and meeting friends, they are my go-to jeans. When I came across Resolute Bay cycling specific skinny jeans, I decided to give them a try. Watch the video to find out how it went.
In the coming months I’ll be doing videos on individual pieces of kit but this week’s video is an overview on layering. It shows you what to wear from 25C+ down to just under 0C, so from UK summer to UK winter. Everyone is a little different so it will take some trial and error at the beginning to figure out what works for you. This video will give you a good idea of the key pieces you’ll need to make layering work for you.
