Layer one. Layer two.

It was a beautiful afternoon so I rode my bike to R&M. I wanted to wear this particular dress, which requires a corset. And the bike ride required the cycling shorts. Functional gear is a must.
Pro Cycling Jerseys: Cycling Clothing For Everyone
It is easy to categorize yourself into classes depending on your comfort, knowledge and physical characteristics. In fact, we do it almost unconsciously. Think about it. Are you small, medium, or large? Are you short or tall? Are you an athlete or a bookworm? Are you a casual drinker or full time party person? When we categorize ourselves in these ways, we immediately exclude ourselves from the things that are not associated with our class. Athletics is a great example. We may categorize ourselves as a casual bicyclist, a cycling enthusiast, or a competitive cyclist. Where many may think that the needs of these classes are different, they are actually quite the same. All cyclists benefit from the right equipment, proper training and a healthy dose of enthusiasm.
Whether you cycle competitively, for fitness, or just for personal pleasure, you should consider acquiring European styled custom and semi custom clothing from manufacturers like Santini. Original team issue apparel like long sleeve cycling jerseys that permit excess moisture to evaporate, cycling shorts and bib shorts that won’t bunch up on you and cause irritation while cycling, and stylish cycling jackets work in these uniquely superior ways because they are custom team issue. Santini custom cycling clothing boasts smooth lines for maximum mobility, smart European designs that flatter the wearer, and high quality, easy to care for, wrinkle-resistant materials.
Maybe you are just about to start a new exercise program or have decided to ride your bike more often for fitness or to better the environment. Santini custom and semi custom cycling clothing and accessories can give your cycling confidence and motivation a much needed boost. The clothing, though specifically made for competitive cycling by experts, is also necessary for general cycling, road biking and mountain bike enthusiasts. The custom cycling apparel allows all wearers to exercise and compete without clothing becoming an impediment or restriction. The sleek designs of the long sleeve jersey, bib shorts, cycling shorts, windproof cycling jackets, cycling gloves and other cycling clothing will not create the ballooning and speed hampering that clothing not made to be worn while cycling often causes.
Original team issue Santini long sleeve jerseys, bib shorts and other cycling clothes are made for men and women in various styles and sizes. Whether petite or extra-large, the usability and benefits of owning custom cycling clothing will improve your cycling experience. The colors and styles available today are varied to allow individuality and comfort no matter what type of cyclist you may be.
Whether cycling is a new activity for you or if you have been competing for years, it is important that you consider your comfort and safety as it relates to your equipment and attire. Clothes that do not hug your body and move easily as you move can become a hazard. Clothes that do not conform to your body may get caught in your bike or get snagged on branches and bushes. Clothes that do not move easily with you can create irritation and make riding uncomfortable or impossible depending on the severity. It is important that one does not cut corners when it comes to these types of details.
Enjoy your cycling and other athletic activities to the fullest by taking the time and care to invest in equipment and apparel that will make it fun and exciting for months and years to come.
