As a pastime it is hard to beat cycling; it is a cheap, fun and healthy pursuit, and it is also a great way of getting around. Any cyclist will tell you that wearing the right clothing enhances the experience, and this is why cycle shorts are an essential part of your wardrobe. Along with the vital helmet – a necessity that protects against head injury – and a good pair of gloves, cycle shorts are designed for comfort and fit, and are not at all expensive.
There are many makes on the market that offer quality and style – look to the likes of LA Gear and Muddyfox, two popular and very trendy names in the world of sports clothing – and the range of colours is simply amazing. You can choose from muted, neutral colours or more outlandish and bright effects; in particular we love the bright pinks that are a popular choice in ladies cycle shorts these days.
The different types range from the tight-fitting lycra versions, supremely comfortable and excellent for use in colder weather, to the looser, soft material versions that are stylish and can be worn for a casual night out. Whatever you choose, prices are quite brilliant and you can build up a wardrobe of contrasting colours and different types.
Men’s cycle shorts also come in excellent colour and pattern choices, and there are matching tops for both men and women to complete the outfit. With all sizes catered for and such a great range of choice you will have no trouble whatsoever finding the cycle shorts that suit you best. With the most comfortable clothing for cycling in, and the appropriate safety equipment, you can take to the road or course with confidence and enjoy your cycling to the full. Cheap, cheerful and fun – that’s cycling!
