Spring Cycling Guide

   Words by Kathryn Dickinson

   on 28/02/2019 10:01:43


Can you hear that? It's the sound of cranks turning and wheels spinning in the sunshine. Spring is on the way. It's been a long, dark, and cold winter but we are almost out of it. With the changing of the clocks comes longer days and this means one thing to us cyclists, post-work spins. This article was written by Kathryn Dickinson, triathlete and online marketing executive here at Rutland Cycling.

For the brave few of us who have continued to keep cycling during the winter, March and April are welcome months as it means a shift closer to summer. Not only longer evenings, Spring also brings with it the first cycling races of the season. We have a plethora of races to look forward to in the coming months as the peloton heads to the cobbles of Northern Europe, so if you too are twitching to get out cycling then read on to find my top spring cycling tips!

The Kit

It's time to put that winter jacket back into the loft and retrieve your shorts and jerseys, well, maybe don't leave yourself with just summer kit. Unfortunately these months can feature a lot of rain, and you can never be too prepared out riding.


My essentials items for Spring riding

  • Warmers - You can never go wrong with a good set of warmers. Legs, arms, knees, and toes. Easy to remove during a ride and stuffing into your back pocket.
  • Gilet - My go to with any ride, it may be chilly at the start but once you have warmed up a gilet will be the perfect layer on most rides.
  • Waterproof or windproof shell - Either or will be good enough in the beginning of spring. You'd be surprised what a difference wearing a windproof jacket will do and you'll rarely see me out riding without mine in spring.
  • Lighter gloves - In the depths of winter I will religiously wear my Endura gloves but as the temperature starts to rise these will be put in retirement in replace of my spring gloves. With little padding these gloves keep off the wind but can easily be stored away when my hands warm up.
  • Long sleeve jersey and base layer - Depending on the temperature I will layer up the jersey and base layer with my gilet, this usually does the trick at keeping me warm.


Spring also means a few changes to my bike to make the riding as enjoyable as possible.

  • All-weather tyres - Off come the winter tyres and on go the all-weather tyres. Winter tyres are built to last and this means a higher rolling resistance than normal so I like to switch over to some faster tyres.
  • Mudguards - If it's raining or there is a lot of standing water I will pop on some mudguards to keep my bike and back clean.
  • Dry lube - When it's looking like a dry week I will switch over to the dry lube on my chain. Wet lube is great in the winter but can easily pick up dirt and clog up so when the sun comes back again I like to make the move over to dry lube. Perhaps even ceramic lube if I'm feeling really fancy!

Head abroad

If the British spring is still a bit too cold for you, now is the perfect time to pack up your bike and move to somewhere warmer… well, maybe not that dramatic but booking a week or two away to Spain or the Canaries will work wonders for your motivation and fitness just in time for the season.


For the past 4 years I have been going to the cycling paradise that is Mallorca, Spain. If it's hills you want, where better to stay than Puerto Pollenca where the Cap de Formentor and Sa Callobra are right on your doorstep.

Places like Lanzarote and Fuerteventura are also popular with cyclists this time of year, with pretty much guaranteed sunshine everyday, it's a sure favourite.
