Great Cycling Clothing

Have you ever thought what to wear when out cycling, whatever the weather?

It's wet and windy outside, but don't let that put you off cycling. Ok, so it can be hard work when heading straight into a head wind, but if you have the right clothing, at least you'll be warm and dry and what harm can a bit of fresh rain do anyway.

What you could do is try some quality cycle clothing such as the OZZO range from here in the UK.

The OZZO range of cycling clothing covers everything from tip to toe, such as warm wooly hat, short and long sleeved jerseys, cycling shorts for warmer weather, base layers for the colder weather and right down to neoprene overshoes to keep your feet warm and dry.

They also supply excellent gloves and mitts - if fact, everything you need to enjoy a few hours out on the bike.

In addition, their own range of cycle tools are available, should you feel inclined to do that bit of maintenance, add a few extras, or just keep your cycle in good clean working order. And what's more, these tools, although very reasonably priced are the real thing, sturdy workshop quality. The usual cleaners and chain lubricants are available, along with special cycling grease.

If you are out and about and unlucky enough to have a puncture, there are some rather neat puncture repair kits available, which do not take up a lot of room in the under saddle bag (and yes, they also have a range of saddle bags and handle bar bags in the OZZO range. Don't forget the all important pump. Or you could consider buying some puncture resistant tyres, if these are not your cup of tea, why not stock up on your choice of tyre from our varied range.

Safety is also key, time to buy a new helmet? Then also stock quality helmets. Be seen be safe, ensure you have good lights and reflective stickers to attach to your helmet, shoes or saddle bag.

Serious about cycling, take part in events, or just want to be prepared? Special massage creams are ideal for cold days, warm days, helping with fatigue or keeping out the water.

Energy drinks are good not only for giving you energy but all important hydration. Try the new gel sachet, ideal for giving 20 to 30 minutes energy without the need for water. Speaking of water, take a look at our range of bottles.

Too cold to ride outside? Don't let that be a reason not to ride, Ride4Fun have a selection of indoor trainers and rollers to keep you fit whilst in the comfort of your own home.

Not a cyclist yourself, but know someone who is? Ride4Fun also have gift vouchers available for that all important present.

Prefer riding a motorcycle? Base layers are excellent on cold days. How about horse riding? Cold winter days can be much more pleasant with a soft Merino Wool base layer to keep you snug. Try the mitts whilst mucking out the stables, ideal to keep you hands warm but still give flexibility.
