Here at Cycle Surgery, however, we are making sure we have everything to help you beat the cold, ride through the winter and become ‘tougher than weather’.
What is ‘Tougher than Weather’ all about?
This time of year is all about keeping motivated. The truly committed will always beast through the winter to head into the spring ride fit, but others need a bit of help to prevent the bike from being relegated to the garage.
I think we can all agree that the British winter can be less than inspiring for the everyday cyclist, but for every problem we have a solution that will help you keep riding in comfort and safely. Raining? GORE-TEX, all season tyres and bikes with disc brakes. Windy? GORE WINDSTOPPER, cold? Primaloft insulation.
Being ‘tougher than weather’ is about not making excuses, staying focused and acknowledging that it will take more than just a bit of wind and rain to stop you from getting out on your bike. No matter the weather, it’s about getting the adrenalin of a high speed decent, the accomplishment of topping a hill climb and the sense of achievement when you get back from the ride, endorphins pumping and a big smile on your face.
