As road cyclists, we are used to being in lycra, but what should we wear whilst cycling in the city? It can often be tricky, especially if you don’t have anywhere to change when you reach your destination, be it for work or shopping. Wearing bright colours help you to be seen by other road users and can help improve safety. We also discuss what type of clothing you should wear, including the type of fabric and it’s weather durability. Once you’ve used our top tips, you’ll feel and cool and comfortable when riding in the city!

    What are those bicycles you guys rode? Can you name those 3 beautiful things? Im from Indonesia and im curious …

  2. Dmytro Dmytrenko December 11, 2020 @ 9:13 pm

    Can I ask you which shorts brand/model you use in 0:45? Thanks a lot in advance 😉

  3. I’ll wear whatever I want. Who cares what you wear.

  4. If I am going to be in traffic, I throw on a bright coloured vest for sure. Looks silly, but so does being run over by a car or bus. Some cyclist commuters I have seen have invested on those high visibility industrial jackets, but they would be hot in summer.

  5. Pls, Road bike is better for all!

  6. is a shammy aka shirt? or shorts?

  7. What nice bikes to the fellas riden? Schindelhauer?

  8. What men’s cycling shorts are worn @ 36 seconds?

  9. I wear a bib underneath a skirt, much more comfortable.

  10. Bread's Biscuits December 11, 2020 @ 9:19 pm

    Living in Phoenix, AZ I don’t think there is such a thing as a seemless transition without having to shower.

  11. anyone knows what pedal is that? 2:23

  12. Soisses Glaubsmir December 11, 2020 @ 9:23 pm

    Didn´t find it mentioned in a trice … as a new daily workplace commuter (due to covid) i started recently here in Berlin, wearing (at least if it´s not too warm) my ski protector jacket for protecting my spine and back!

    I must wonder a bit that this is obviously still no theme at least for professional roadies, ´cause it also became for professional downhill ski racers with similar risks already a few years ago

  13. Wearing a Lycra then go inside a restaurant with your bulge showing it to the whole world

  14. Pru Lui 呂同學 December 11, 2020 @ 9:26 pm

    I like this topic and I don’t need wear Like a PRO. Thanks and support!

  15. Social Anxiety club December 11, 2020 @ 9:27 pm

    I just wanted to see if I should wear jeans or joggers for going on my bike lol

  16. Helmet!?

  17. Hernaez Echostrix Enrico December 11, 2020 @ 9:29 pm

    I wear flipflop even in long rides when i gotten lazy to find my socks

  18. I’m always struggling to find reasonably priced commuter cycling gear…stuff that is neither road lycra or baggies but is still comfortable.

  19. Paramo cycling jeans, nice and light and showerproof with normal tee shirt or Merino base. Depending on temp either Paramo Ciclo jacket or Montane windproof. Gore-Tex lined walking trainers . All -except jeans – double up as my walking gear and are fine for strolling around in.

  20. The simple answer to your question; something.

  21. What brand of bikes are they riding?

  22. Nxt qazim gamming December 11, 2020 @ 9:34 pm

    Nice viedo

  23. Which helmet is the guy with the khakis wearing?

  24. kyeeesh. ill stop wearing my mogul clothing.

  25. AHHH THE BEES AHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  26. It really depends on the bike you’re using. To get to work or just generally around the city I use a dutch style roadster and with that I can basically wear anything I want. I can wear a suit or even long coats reaching over my knees and still ride comfortably without getting any dirt on my cloth.

  27. Justin Dinamling December 11, 2020 @ 9:40 pm

    Can i wear cycling short under loose shorts?

  28. was going through the beginner cyclist playlist and this video felt really weird to me.. then I remembered I’m dutch. So.. never mind good video!

  29. Need to know what that bag holder on the front of si’s bike is called, I’m looking for one of those.

  30. Useful video guys….nice to see you’re in Bristol as well! 🙂

  31. george tsalapetikos December 11, 2020 @ 9:46 pm

    First day I ride on a normal outfit for an hour and know it hurts, 2days later it still hurts.
    I want to ride my bicycle inside the town. 4times a day 20min each time. What should I do to prevent saddle sore in normal outfit?

  32. What kind of bike is the silver one? Thanks!

  33. Aaarrr Emma… we miss Emma.

  34. Hi there, would love to know the name/ Brand of the casual lycra shorts you’re using on this video, they look sleek

  35. Global Cycling Network December 11, 2020 @ 9:52 pm

    What do you wear when cycling through the city?

  36. Cheap ones aswell

  37. Fabienne Haichour December 11, 2020 @ 9:55 pm

    A bell 🛎 is mandatory on the handlebar in Canada.

  38. Just wear tighter fitting tee shirts or polos, moisture wicking fabric, and decent elastic material shorts. It doesnt have to be "cycling apparel"

  39. I just wear a hoodie and stretchy jeans and a bmx helmet when cycling a road bike

  40. Where can i get that front bike rack ? 👀

  41. I was considering going to a thrift ship and buying a dressy type of shirt. cutting the sleeves off, and using them to stay out of the sun. and maybe using the rest of the shirt to cover my neck

  42. Posh boys get real don’t believe the hype

  43. Who makes those shorts he wearing!?

  44. What do I wear while cycling in the city? Mostly denim jeans, hiking boots and a good shirt with a pocket for carrying small things.
    I’ve never been interested in dressing like a baboon in heat and mooning passing cars as I ride along, so I just wear what I wear when I don’t ride.

  45. I go to work with folding bike

  46. If you commute daily on your bicycle to work, having a pannier rack and good pannier bag as you don’t get a sweaty back, it was the most useful thing I bought for my commuter bike.

  47. GCN: Ladies, consider a high-neck t-shirt
    Me: to avoid flashing?
    GCN: goodness no, you do you, it’s to avoid things like bees and wasps
    Me: 😮

  48. What is the brand of these bikes please ?

  49. Someone is enjoying pouring that water a little too much.
