What should you not wear when cycling?
Rule #1 – you do NOT wear your underwear under cycling shorts. Having a pair of cotton underwear inside your cycling shorts negates all of the benefits provided (friction control, moisture management). If you have bib shorts or bib knickers, your cycling jersey goes OVER the bib straps, not under.
Is it OK to cycle in the rain?
Riding in the rain is more dangerous than riding in dry conditions for an obvious reason: slippery when wet. The road itself is slicker. Painted surfaces and metal road obstacles are like ice. It takes longer to stop and it’s easier to slide out, so you need to brake earlier and lighter, especially on wet descents.
Does cycling in the rain damage your bike?
Avoid taking the seatpost with you if you expect rain. Rain will get into the inside of the frame, and pool down in the bottom bracket. One day in the rain won’t hurt your bike too bad, but continuous storage outdoors will add up. Be sure to clean that drivetrain often as you ride in the wet.

What should I look for in a cycling jacket?
A jacket should be the outer layer of a three layer system. Make sure you wear a quality wicking base-layer next to your skin, Merino wool or quality synthetics are best, a wicking cycling jersey, maybe fleece lined if cold, next and then your jacket on top.
When should I wear a cycling gilet?
Gilets are invaluable on cold rides where you’re already wearing several layers, and have reached the point where another set of sleeves is going to leave you bulked out and restricted. Most gilets are thin and merely for wind protection, though – there’s a lot less choice if you want proper insulation as well.
Is Paramo really waterproof?
This is from the same train of thought as its “not waterproof”. This in actual fact is where Paramo excels beyond the conventional waterproof. Water passes through your jacket, not vapour. Paramo on the other hand wicks water, in liquid form, out through the pump liner and down the out-side of the jacket.

Is there a truly waterproof jacket?
Water-resistant zips are now standard in the best waterproof jackets. These are not fully waterproof all the time and should have an inner flap to repel any rain that gets through. A standard zip with external and internal flaps is more secure but found on few garments these days.
