Fit mudguards. Charge lights. Dig out cold weather clothing. Seasonal traditions of the year round cyclist. The end of summer doesn’t have to mean the end of your riding year. So ride with us and carry on commuting, keep logging those road miles and continue to fly down some muddy trails.

As summer slips slowly through our fingers, it’s time to start thinking about adapting yourself to changing weather conditions. Whichever your chosen cycling discipline, protect extremities with waterproof, windproof gloves and overshoes from a variety of leading brands such as Gore, Altura and GripGrab. A waterproof jacket is also a must at this time of year, whilst technical fabrics are now added to winter jerseys to ward off cold winds and drizzle.

With darkness descending faster and rain, mist and fog more common at this time of year you’re more likely to be out in low light conditions. Our light range features a variety of lumens, beam patterns and battery life to ensure you can find one to suit you. Mudguards are a must at this time of year as they keep water, spray and mud from being thrown up into your face, shorts and jersey. Turbo trainers are a perfect tool to keep your fitness levels topped up when the weather is really inclement.
