It’s been around six years since the last time I cycled on a winter day. This year I had a small autumn break from cycling, but now I’m back after putting on the Schwalbe Marathon Winter 35-622 tires. The temperature was -8C, so not that cold and almost dry roads and paths. A blast to drive.
Some of the gear:
- Rapha winter hat
- Rapha winter collar
- Ski goggles
- Rapha classic softshell jacket
- Rapha + Paul Smith merino jersey
- Mavic thermo gloves
- dhb flashlight thermal bibs
- SOC winter running pants
- Mavic aksium shoes with Mavic warmshells
That’s a fair amount of winter cycling gear, but they did work well and I ended up with a wide smile on my face.
