6 Women’s Waterproof Cycling Shorts for Mountain Biking

Keep your derriere dry on the trail with these women's waterproof cycling shorts for mountain biking. Perfect for the wet weather!

A wet bum is never fun, but it’s one of the problems mountain bikers face, particularly in the autumn, winter and spring. In the UK, the trails are wet more than they are dry, so a good pair of waterproof cycling shorts are an ideal addition to your kit wardrobe.
