What should you not wear when cycling?
Rule #1 – you do NOT wear your underwear under cycling shorts. Having a pair of cotton underwear inside your cycling shorts negates all of the benefits provided (friction control, moisture management). If you have bib shorts or bib knickers, your cycling jersey goes OVER the bib straps, not under.
Is cycling in the rain dangerous?
Riding in the rain is more dangerous than riding in dry conditions for an obvious reason: slippery when wet. The road itself is slicker. Painted surfaces and metal road obstacles are like ice. It takes longer to stop and it’s easier to slide out, so you need to brake earlier and lighter, especially on wet descents.
Does cycling in the rain damage your bike?
Avoid taking the seatpost with you if you expect rain. Rain will get into the inside of the frame, and pool down in the bottom bracket. One day in the rain won’t hurt your bike too bad, but continuous storage outdoors will add up. Be sure to clean that drivetrain often as you ride in the wet.

How tight should cycling tights be?
Make sure they are tight enough to remain in place but don’t restrict movement especially at the knee. Some manufacturers even pre-shape certain areas, mostly the knee, so again if they feel odd standing up get into a cycling position for feel.
What are cycling tights?
Cycling tights extend the coverage to your ankles, and are usually made of a thicker material to keep you warm. Like shorts they’re available with and without bibs, and they’re also available with and without a pad. You wear unpadded tights over Lycra shorts so you can get more than one use from them in between washes.
