FUN IN THE SUN
HOW TO MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR
SUMMER BIKE RIDES

CLEAR SKIES. SUNNY DAYS. WARM NIGHTS.

Summer is the season to get out and ride, but don’t get caught pedaling in the sun without the right gear. Having the correct apparel will ensure that you make the most of your summer cycling adventures by staying cool and protected from the heat of the day. We’ve collected the best caps, gloves, shorts, jerseys, and more to help you enjoy your bike all summer long. Come by today and our staff will help select the apparel that you need to keep cool when the rides get hot.

EYES ON THE ROAD

There are few things worse than enjoying your ride only to be distracted by sweat and sun in your eyes. Our selection of moisture-wicking caps and headbands will help keep your eyes protected from sweat. UV blocking sunglasses will help you keep your eyes on the road.

KEEP YOUR COOL

While you’re out soaking up the sun, protect your skin from harmful UV rays with lightweight, breathable arm covers. Unlike their winter cousins, arm covers help keep you cool as you ride. Another item usually only associated with winter - gloves - absorb vibrations from riding on the road and reduce fatigue during long rides, and are year-round essentials.

HOT UNDER THE COLLAR?

A good way to regulate your core temperature while you’re riding in the heat is to wear a lightweight baselayer. Breathable baselayers pull moisture away from your body and help to keep your body cool while you’re riding. Cycling jerseys also help by wicking away sweat as well as by providing some handy storage for your necessities.

IN THE HOT SEAT

Your legs are a key component of your ride. Neglecting their comfort could hinder your summer fun. Wearing the correct cycling shorts or bib with a quality chamois can mean the difference between disappointment and discomfort and epic adventures. Add lightweight knee covers to protect your legs from harmful UV rays.

BEAT THE HEAT

Happy feet make for a happy ride. Moisture-wicking socks will grant you the comfort that you need to tackle your favorite ride. Well-fitted shoes allow you to pedal more efficiently so that you can pedal long and in exceptional satisfaction into those warm summer nights.
