PREPARE FOR THE CHILL
Layering is key to temperature management. Layer up for the coldest weather, then be prepared to stow garments like gilets and warmers if it warms up.
BE READY FOR FREEZING RAIN
Always carry a waterproof jacket or gilet that packs down into a jersey pocket, ready for the rain.
STAY BRIGHT IN LOW LIGHT
Winter rides are characterised by darkness, so wear reflective garments to help ensure you’re visible even in low light conditions.
