Why is cycling clothing important- Powered By Docstoc
					For many athletes, having the correct clothing is an essential part of their job in order
to perform at their best and hopefully succeed in winning recognition. Whether you
are a swimmer, football player, jockey or cyclist, having the right clothing could be
the difference between winning and losing. But what about those of us who are less
serious and just cycle for the pure enjoyment? Is it really necessary to have
professional cycling clothing? Cycling is slightly different to most other sports due to
the fact that when we go cycling, we need certain equipment to protect our bodies and
ensure we remain comfortable.
  Having a cycling helmet is probably the single most important piece of cycling 鈥榗
lothing 鈥?and everyone who cycles should wear one. Cycling can be dangerous and
without a helmet, even just falling off your bike could be fatal. Many people do not
realise the sheer importance of wearing a helmet, but without one, you could be
asking for a nasty injury. Riding for long periods of time requires us to sit on a saddle,
which is not one of the most comfortable seats we could choose to sit on. Therefore
the need to have proper cycling shorts is almost paramount in order to enjoy our ride.
The padding in cycling shorts helps our bodies to protect itself and makes riding that
much more enjoyable.
  For those of you who are avid cyclists and will enjoy riding for more than an hour at
a time will soon come to realise that cycling with a bag is both uncomfortable and

bike. Many professional cycling clothing brands will offer both jerseys and jackets
with adequate pockets in order to store the essentials such as keys and phone. Assos

temperature. Whether it is cold outside or hot, a cycling jersey will draw the sweat
away from your body and help you stay dry. The material jersey 鈥檚 are made from
are designed to maintain a comfortable body temperature so you can focus on the ride
