It’s that strange in-between season. It’s certainly not summer any more, but it’s not quite cold enough for long sleeves jerseys, full insulating mid-layers and jackets all the time, plus forking out for a whole lot of new kit can be costly. What do you do?
Investing in some multi-purpose layering accessories can winterise your wardrobe without breaking the bank. Items like neck gaiters and arm warmers are great for when the seasons are transitioning, they’re considerably cheaper than a new jersey or set of bib-tights, and will take up a lot less space in your kit cupboard if space is a problem.
These are also the bits of kit that keep on giving – you’ll find a lot of these items come in handy year round (especially with our changeable British weather) and work well across different sports too.
We’ve pulled together 7 items to keep you snug this autumn, with a few examples of each to give you a flavour of the huge range that’s out there. There are also some bargains to be had if you shop smart.
Go forth and ride warmly.
