New Year at Cyclista
This December has been a little bit milder than most, ok so a lot milder than normal with temperatures in Cumbria hitting 15 degrees! However we have seen quite a bit more rain than normal, and to be honest during the down pours I have hit the Turbo trainer in the basement until it filled with over 2 foot of water. The rain has been just crazy with massive amounts of local flooding and regular road closures. One locally has led to an Army bridge being installed which I have yet to pluck up the courage to ride over as its pretty steep and metal, maybe I will do it on the mountain bike first.
As a result of the mild temperatures and some breaks in the rain, this week I decided to get out on the bike again, but my wardrobe choices are proving challenging. Amazingly I have managed to get it right two out of two rides this week, which if you knew me you would realise is a miracle in itself. I am always too hot or too cold, all the time!
I have been hitting the road in my Cyclista Womens cycle leggings, and I am so so happy with how they perform. They are a full length legging ideal for training, racing and sportive riding. Constructed from high performance fabric that offers perfect muscle compression, decreases muscle vibration and strain and helps improve performance. I have found the cycle leggings seem to keep me the right temperature, in 7 and 13 degrees I was totally comfortable and to my husbands delight not stopping every 10 minutes to add or remove layers, an actual miracle. I team mine up with Woolie Boolie socks and Blue Seventy toe covers as I suffer from severely numb feet in winter, but find that works for me. Hope everyone else is having fun out and about.
