CYCLING WITH WILSONS WHEELS

Getting out on your bike in winter often requires a little more discipline than it does in the summer - the cold, wet weather can be a major deterrent! That said, a good ride will get you out into the fresh air, get you moving and get those feel-good hormones flowing combatting any winter gloom.

So here are a few tips and tricks to keep you warm on your winter ride…

• Fit silver foil between the sole of your cycling shoes and the insoles - this will prevent cold air from entering the vents.

• Use water resistant rather than water repellent fabric, this will keep you dryer and warmer for longer.

• Try out thermal base layers - they’re lightweight and will act as an additional layer of skin

• Wear your cycling gear in the house for around 30 minutes before you go out on your ride. When you go out your clothes will have reached body temperature.

• This time of year the tyres kick up a lot of spray, so fitting mudguards to your bike will help keep you dry and warm!

• Use a water bottle with a thermal lining and take a warm drink with you instead of cold water.

• Try harder - the more effort you put in the more heat you will generate!

• Sheltered routes will protect you from the wind and reduce the wind chill factor, which can make it feel a lot colder than it actually is.

• Mountain bike and cyclecross routes are generally warmer in winter than road - speeds are slower lowering the wind chill factor.

• Riding in a group will give you shelter, but being with others will also keep your moral up.
