Arm & Leg Warmers
During seasons where the weather is changeable such as autumn and spring cycling arm warmers for women can be an essential addition to your equipment. They are small enough to put in your kit bag and can provide additional protection against the elements should you be caught out in cold road spray or a sudden change in temperature. They will also keep you dry and warm should it start to rain or be removed if it starts to get warmer.
For the same reason, cycling leg warmers for ladies are also a popular choice as they work in exactly the same way. They can be slipped on over your other cycling clothes and are available in a wide selection of weights and thicknesses to suit your requirements and the weather conditions you are riding in. Arm and leg warmers are made from light, breathable material and take up minimal space in your pockets or backpack.
Cycling arm and leg warmers also protect the skin from sun or wind burn and can be advantageous against being hit by bugs and insects too. They are an ideal choice for cyclists who prefer the freedom of shorts and short sleeved jerseys but need a bit of additional protection from the elements at certain times of day such as early in the morning or as the weather cools in the evening. They are available in a variety of options from cool lycra for protection from the sun, to warm fleece which will help stop chills and keep muscles performing at their optimum.
