Get Your Ride On!
What Apparel I Need To Do Mountain Cycling, Or I Can Wear Regular Apparel?
Cycling gear is good for cycling, because that’s what it’s designed for.
I wear baggy cycling shorts, with liners that have cushioning in the seat area, and shirts, produced from a breathable material, that give me room to move around, you don’t want anything that might restrict your movement.
I always wear a helmet and gloves, I never intend to fall off, but it can happen.
For footwear, you need something that will grip the pedals, and have some grip for whenever you need to put your foot down on the tricky bits.
If the weather is bad, then something to keep the rain out, and some warmth in, will be good, and in the winter I use waterproof socks, because I like to keep my feet warm.
You can wear normal gear, but proper cycling gear will be more comfortable, and that will help you ride better.

Suggestions For Wet Weather Bicycling Footwear…? I’m going on a week-long bike ride (300-350 miles) and I’m suspecting chances of wet weather. I had planned on wearing my lightweight running shoes but don’t want to ride w/soggy feet all day long. I’m reconsidering other options. I’m fairly practical but I’m open to any suggestions no matter how unconventional.
I’ve used booties and even plastic bags in a pinch. But have only found them useful/worthwhile in cold weather (since cold and wet are potentially a dangerous combination).
I’ve never been satisfied with any of them in warmer weather, since like a cycling jacket, if the weather is warm sweat buildup (even in breathable fabric) — and the inevitable leakage no matter how “waterproof” the covers claim to be — gets you just as wet on a long ride as just letting the rain in, and keep the feet wetter between showers..
Assuming you are talking about a warm weather ride (70F or more) my suggestion is to simply wear what you normally would on your feet and let it rain. Unless it’s a continuous rain your shoes will dry out more between showers than if you cover tham, and once you are wet it’s not such a big deal. Get your feet dry and dry the shoes as best you can at the end of the day. And finally, bring a change of shoes if you can so that if the first set get wet you will have some dry ones for the next day (assuming it’s better weather … otherwise wear the wet ones again).
Is There Shoes I Need To Cycle? I started cycling on a regular basis. I have a Diamondback Insight two. It’s a hybrid. What kind of footwear should I be using?
There are special cycling shoes designed to clip to the pedals, however, you do not need anything special. A good pair of athletic shoes will work just fine.
What Footwear For Triathlon ? Hi , i’m entering my first tri in a couple of weeks. it is short distances and i am ready fitness wise. i have already got spd’s and shoes for my bike and running shoes for the run but would it be better to put the running shoes on for the cycle and use toe clips with straps rather than spend time changing footwear during the transition from cycle to run ? thanks in advance
Honestly, the small amount of time you’d lose in the transition changing shoes is easily made up with the assistance of cycling specific shoes during the ride. You might consider getting elasticized laces for your running shoes, which will shave a little time off the transition.
