Over a spring training camp, the weather is likely to vary – it could be baking one day, and chilly the next, so you’ll want all the bases covered.
Accessories help a lot here – we’d suggest:
Base layers: Ideally one long and one short sleeved. Base layers form the ‘base’ of your on the bike outfit, they absorb sweat to keep you from cooling down on descents, and give you a little warmth on the chilly mornings.
Full finger gloves and mitts: What you need each day might vary – and since they don’t take up a lot of room, opting for both is a good idea. You could skip mitts if you’re not a fan, but over long days in the saddle they can help to reduce fatigue.
Arm warmers and leg warmers: These will help make your jerseys and shorts as versatile as possible. If you go for full leg warmers, you won’t need to take tights, as well as shorts, which will really help you to travel lighter. Oversocks can also be a useful addition.
Gilet and/or packable waterproof: These really come into their own on the typically mountainous terrain of most training camp destinations – you’ll heat up on the ascent, so choose one that packs up small, but that extra layer will make all the difference on the way down.
