To a beginner, cyclists seem to do some odd things. They wear tight clothing, they ride downhill in a tucked position, and they ride very closely together. The main thing that slows cyclists down is drag. Drag is a backward force created by air friction.
What should I wear cycling in 45 degree weather?
If temperatures range from 33 to 45 degrees and it’s dry, you can get away with a long-sleeve jersey and a thermal vest. Even at warmer temperatures, if it’s raining you’re going to want to wear a rain jacket and pack a few extra layers in your jersey pockets. You can’t go wrong with a pair of arm warmers and a vest.
What should you not wear when cycling?
