Cycling in winter - Our clothing top picks

   Words by Aaron Scott

Cycling in winter can be a great way to beat post summer blues, but cold fingers can turn a simple journey into a nightmare. If you are focussed on your cold fingers and toes you can't concentrate on actually riding your bike, and keeping your eye out for ice patches and other hazards. Here at Rutland Cycling we have an impressive range of winter cycling kit. Here we will detail a few of our best sellers to ensure you are a happy cyclist through these winter months.


The Endura Strike gloves are one of our top winter sellers

One of our best selling winter items is the Endura Strike Glove - It's windproof and waterproof but what's equally important is the warmth that this winter cycling glove offers. The Endura Strike glove doesn't restrict movement and feeling like some other winter gloves do, meaning you feel in complete control of your bike which is very important, especially in these winter months. The gloves come equipped with a good amount of reflective piping which aids visibility when cycling in winter as well as night-time riding. This glove is available in a women's fit which is identical to the Men's equivalent but specifically cut to fit a woman's hand.

Wearing the right layers is absolutely vital through winter. Your body will generate plenty of heat while cycling, so your clothing needs to be able to deal with this heat build-up and not allow it to turn to moisture.


The Altura Mayhem Jacket is available in 3 different colours and is a great value winter jacket for sub £100

The front of your outer layer needs to be windproof while vented side panels will help dissipate excess heat.

Breathable fabrics such as GoreTex work well, but at sub-zero temperatures the tiny holes in the fabric can freeze up, locking in moisture at the sides and back.

Choose lightweight outer layers with zips that can be adjusted on the go depending on the conditions that this Great British winter will inevitably throw at you.

The Altura Mayhem jacket is a prime example and offers great value for money. The long sleeves and the cut of the tail means this is a top jacket for winter cycling.

Base layers

The Altura Merino Long sleeve jersey is the ideal jersey for the winter months

Make sure your mid and base layers are synthetic or wool and not cotton, as cotton will retain moisture and feel colder against your skin. Merino Wool base layers are a fairly new technology. Merino wool is very warm and offers a low odour quality meaning these base layers are ideal for those winter bike rides. The Altura Merino Long sleeve base layers are a great value for money merino top and retail at less than £40!


The Endura MT500 overshoe is our best selling overshoe throughout winter

A good pair of overshoes don't have to be expensive and can really make a difference to your winter cycling.

Overshoes, such as the Endura Road Cycling overshoe or the Endura MT500 MTB Overshoe pull directly over your cycling shoes much like a sock, albeit slightly more difficult and tighter to put on than a sock and can have a velcro or zip to the rear to ensure a snug fit. Overshoes are designed to keep elements such as snow, rain, wind and dirt at bay.


The Endura BaaBaa Skullcap is a really affordable way to keep your ears warm whilst in the saddle

There's nothing worse than getting cold ears or a cold nose while cycling - It really can be the difference between enjoying cycling when it's crisp outside and not. Luckily - there are a number of options to keep cold ears, and noses that resemble Rudolph's at bay.

To combat cold ears, there really is no better option than a skull cap. These are relatively inexpensive and fit on your head much like a woolly hat but are almost skin tight meaning that you can put your helmet on over it with no hassle.

As for your nose, a number of Buff products are available in a style to suit all riders. Buffs quite simply pull over your head and act as a scarf to keep your neck warm. You can pull the material up to just below your eyes to keep your nose, mouth and neck toasty whilst in the saddle. What's more, is that a buff will double up as a skull-cap type hat, albeit slightly cooler for those early spring bike rides - Bonus!
