You have a lot of options when it comes to bicycle clothing. My riding lately, however, has taken a sharp turn from the spandex and neon colors most often times associated with the professional cyclist. Instead of following the pack and donning the tight and bright bike gear cyclists are usually known for, I’ve drifted back to my bicycle touring roots and now wear clothes that, while still work for cycling, allow my skin to breathe and do not instantly brand me as a cyclist once I step off the bike.
The photo below shows the riding clothes I wore on my recent tour of Europe. As you can see, there are no spandex shorts and no bright colors. If you were to remove my helmet and sunglasses I could walk into a crowd of people just about anywhere in the world and you’d never know that I was a cyclist.
