Rapha's Guide to Riding in Summer - Men's

Long days made for riding, racing, and exploring with friends await. Still, summer brings its own set of challenges to the committed cyclist. Follow our guide of tips and tricks to stay comfortable on the road as the heat rises.

SEASONAL SUGGESTIONS

LIGHTEN UP

Super light flyweight jerseys and bib shorts keep your temperature down on the hottest days, wicking quickly to keep you cool and dry as you make the most of the better weather.

LAYER UP

It might be hot during the day, but mornings and evenings can cool quickly. Pack a lightweight gilet for the shadier moments of your summer day.

EYES UP

Bright sun casts deep shadows. Polarised lenses make it easier to see between areas of light and shade, and glasses protect your eyes at speed from dry, dusty roads.

KEY CONSIDERATIONS

COVER UP

Summer cycling brings with it the joys of riding in just a jersey and shorts – but uncovered skin can be susceptible to damage from the sun’s rays. Consider carrying a pair of SPF-treated arm screens if you’re riding through the middle of the day, when the sun is at its strongest.

LAYERING

While it may seem counterintuitive at first, base layers actually aid the body’s natural ability to regulate your temperature in the heat. Wicking sweat away from the skin to keep you cool, a lightweight base layer will serve you well on all but the hottest rides.

PACKABILITY

On all-day riding adventures or for times when a shady lunch spot turns cool, it pays to carry a lightweight and packable layer to keep you warm. Always stow a jacket or gilet in a pocket or frame bag for peace of mind when needed.
