Why do cyclists wear tight clothes?
To a beginner, cyclists seem to do some odd things. They wear tight clothing, they ride downhill in a tucked position, and they ride very closely together. The main thing that slows cyclists down is drag. Drag is a backward force created by air friction.
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.

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.
What should I look for in a cycling jacket?
A jacket should be the outer layer of a three layer system. Make sure you wear a quality wicking base-layer next to your skin, Merino wool or quality synthetics are best, a wicking cycling jersey, maybe fleece lined if cold, next and then your jacket on top.
Is windbreaker good for cycling?
A windbreaker jacket you can easily stow away should offer more protection than a gilet, be lightweight and (hopefully) breathable enough for when effort levels increase and the body starts to get warm.
