I like winter cycling that gives us relaxation especially at night or as the sun leaves us pretty early. My cycling night clothes and reflective cycling gear bring confidence for the night ride to less busy roads. There are only difficulties in cycling for a night to not wear right clothes for a ride. If you desire to save always use reflective clothing or fluorescent colors. Wearing light color’s or blacks at night put some personality off cycling.When I ride during a day I also not able to see other riders until I get close because the not have exact color warning according to weather and blended.

Avoid black jersey

You must have to wear something reflective and visible cycling clothing Instead of black colors.

Front light will let others see you are coming and prevent accidents such as being doored by motorists getting out of their parked cars because the most likely cannot see you.

Reflective clothing
Wind and water resistance vest

Sometimes you just want to take on your ride a little extra protection from the wind and rain, this is where the Europa gilt fits perfectly into your wardrobe. While a gilt or wind vest is never going to give the same protection as a jacket they are ideal when you just need something to fend off a wind chill or a light shower. The front and sides of the jacket is a made with a durable wind and water resistant fabric while the rear of the gilt is a breathable polyester. The vest is fully lined, has a waist draw cord and rear zipped pocket. Colored in black with reflective strips to the chest and rear pocket this gilt offers fantastic value for money.

Reflective clothing

In traffic, hi-viz and reflective clothing can make as much of a difference to rider visibility as lights do. Consider this when buying your winter cycling kit and, with modern reflective materials, don’t think that reflective has to mean gaudy or UN stylish. As with lights, reflective material on moving parts of your body is most effective. Look for tights and overshoes with reflective piping, decals or panels. Don’t forget your hands as, unless these are visible, other road users won’t be able to see your signals. Choose reflective cycling gloves or opt for some reflective wristbands.

Side visibility with reflectors

You need to be visible from the side as well as from the front and back. Many bike lights do not meet the legal requirement of 110-degree visibility so it is important that you address this issue with additional lights if necessary. Again, movement equals visibility, so, spoke lights and reflectors and reflective overshoes are good ideas. A group of cyclists is more visible than a single rider; motivate some of your friends to join your ride with cycling at night clothing.IN the dark or low light require hi-vis jersey, jacket, gloves.

In summer

Wear reflective cycling vest or bike reflectors for more visibility. By law, you also need to have front and ankle reflectors.
