Here is what I’d typically wear for urban riding. It was cool in the AM with a light rain.
- Helmet: I generally don’t wear a helmet for casual city riding. You can’t see it, but I had a baseball hat on. If it’s chilly I’ll ride in a toque.
- Torso: A lightweight wicking T-shirt keeps me dry. You can get them in more stylish versions so you don’t look like you just left a 10K race. On top I wore a light soft shell which blocks the wind, sheds snow and light rain while allowing lots of moisture to get out – key for hard biking efforts.
- Legs: I wear wicking boxers day to day so I always have them on. I love capris because they adapt to a wide range of temperatures and look more classy than shorts if your plans change and you have to look respectable.
- Feet: Light-weight running socks inside some trail runners.
- Hands: nothing.
- Face: Just sunglasses.
- Luggage: Messenger bag – the trendy way to carry your junk.
