    This is exactly what keeps new people from the sport we love. Dress however you want as long as you ride your bike. There are many kinds of Cyclists and not everyone wants to wear lycra don’t be one of those elitists that divide the community

    but in GBM they say its okay to wear baggy shorts. I’m not used to fit outfit ūüôĀ

    Unless you’re a paid professional and/or you have someone to massage your legs after every training ride then there are no benefits to shaving your legs and you certainly shouldn’t be pressured into doing so. That’s the same by the way for women and men.

    Mountain bike helmet

    Winter cycling jacket
    Jogging bottoms
    Astro football trainers

    could you guys make a video on how to look normal on a roadbike?

    Why try to put us all in the same box ride in whatever you want. Just ride.

    I wear cycling specific clothing, but every item has a purpose other than just making me look the part. When people ask, I make a point of telling them that they can cycle in regular clothes. And even me, when I’m using a bicycle as transportation rather than as a leisure activity, I wear clothing appropriate for where I’m going, rather than the way I’m traveling.

    More visability be nice. Leg hair matters not.

    What a shitty video with a shitty presenter and a shitty content

    plus this gear is expensive i try to buy something new every month … but wearing the right gear does makeva difference in the longer rides…

    I like to ride my bike to the store and around town; I am also a road cyclist. Seeing now that I must conform to someone else’s boxed logic of what cycling is and isn’t? I shave my legs because of my team mates not because I’m a pussy that can’t handle road rash or because of my shit bike handling skills. I try to ride those blades at least 2 minutes per shower wairing nothing.

    I like bathing suites. Just saying, cyclists in the real world don’t give a shit how you dress just gtfo and ride your bike.



  16. Cell Phone on June 27, 2019 at 9:11 pm

    So how should pedestrians and motorists dress? Dark and low visibility‚Äč colours too? Should I ditch my prescription glasses because they aren’t bike specific?



  17. Mark Spaul on June 27, 2019 at 9:12 pm

    hair is not important unless you’re an Ironman absolutely going for it



  18. Quantum Sheep on June 27, 2019 at 9:15 pm

    Follow Peter Sagan and don’t shave legs it makes no real difference and keep you warmer when the wind is strong



  19. Bat Vigilante on June 27, 2019 at 9:17 pm

    Lol shaving leg hair is for women



  20. Free soul on June 27, 2019 at 9:19 pm

    Ride your bike and have fun. Thats it



  21. Tomas Celaya on June 27, 2019 at 9:21 pm

    The leg shaving is for the road rash.



  22. Brian Moore on June 27, 2019 at 9:25 pm

    All in except for the shaved legs!



  23. L Drogonè on June 27, 2019 at 9:28 pm

    Rebecca has that proper thickness going on…..she’s a cutie, and a hottie!

    This is partially true. Clothing should be proper sports clothing. Mind
    you, I am not saying buy cycling clothing, just proper sports clothing.
    Something that has ability to get that sweat off of your body. People
    using cotton shirts are in for a pain. Cotton gets soaked and starts
    chafing really fast. Other than that, if you are not into serious
    exercise you can wear whatever makes you feel good.

    You just tell them what to wear without explaining why. Let me do it for you.

    Glasses: Lenses of cycling glasses are made to absorb the impact when something like a small piece of stone or a bee hits your eyes. They also cover your eyes from wind, which can be harmful for your eyes in long term. So it’s good for your safety.

    Jersey: Provides an aerodynamic fit, has back pockets. In my opinion definitely not a necessity for a beginner. You can wear anything that wicks sweat. You can even wear a cotton shirt if you feel comfortable after you sweat.

    Cycling thights: They are thight therefore more aerodynamic, they wick moisture away, and most importantly, they preserve your butt on long rides. As long as your butt doesn’t hurt, they are not really important. You can wear anything you’re comfortable, preferably something breathable and moisture wicking

    Cycling socks: They are almost no diffrent than any other sports sock. Again, definately not a necessity for a beginner

    Clipless pedals and shoes: They allow you to lock your feet to the pedals so that you can pull the pedals up as well as you push them down. This allows you to use diffrent muscle groups and go faster.

    You don’t have to get everything right when you’re beginning, just make sure you are safe. You will find out what works best for you with experiance. Just get on your bike and pedal.

    Sorry for bad english if I made any mistakes
