With the clocks going back on Sunday, October 29th, you may be getting an extra hour in bed, but you are also going to be riding in the dark a lot more. For many of us, this year, the clock change coincides with the end of the school half-term. It’s likely that there will be more children to watch out for during commuting hours, which is made much more difficult thanks to the darker evenings.
says, “We can all look forward to the crisp autumn days where riding is a pleasure and it whets our appetite for the next biking season, but we need to make sure we have prepared correctly. Being in the right gear in colder months means layering up or supplementing our fleece with some plug in kit, being warm allows us the flexibility to enjoy the ride and the comfort to concentrate. And of course, after a nice winter ride we can spend some useful time cleaning the bike again.”
