If you are reading this you are either hooked on or seriously thinking about enjoying triathlon. Either you're already participating or you're planning for your first. You might be asking yourself - how do I get faster and be more comfortable on the bike? The answer is: dress the part! Sure, you can ride your bike more - that certainly helps- but wearing the right clothing is paramount to success. You probably already have a pair of cycling or tri shorts, but what are you wearing on top? The cycling jersey is 100% scientifically proven to improve speed and performance. They are designed for cycling by cyclists and have all the things you need to make your ride more enjoyable. How?
1- They are made of breathable, wicking material and they zip up. There is nothing worse than a sweaty, stuck-on shirt. It can make you so uncomfortable that you may seriously consider quitting your ride. And when you are done? What's worse than pulling a sweaty, suck on shirt over your head? The worst. A jersey will keep you drier and comfortable during your ride. And if you get a little hot you can unzip it a bit to get a nice, cool breeze flowing through. And when you are done- unzip that thing and take it off without the fear of getting stuck with a shirt half on and half off.
2- They have back pockets. Why? So you can carry stuff ! Your phone, your snacks, your chapstick- anything you need can be safely and comfortably stored on you. You can just reach back and grab what you need- you may not even need to stop while you do it!
3- They look cool. You will impress your friends and intimidate your rivals when you roll up looking pro. A cute jersey with your shorts will make you feel good. And when you feel good you'll be faster. Guaranteed.
Now you might be asking, "Once I have my cute jersey what if it's just a little too cold to wear short sleeves, but not cold enough for a jacket?" This is where the arm warmers come in. Keep your arms nice and toasty while still looking fashionable in your jersey. And, if you get a little warm you can take them off. What do you do with the arm warmers once you have taken them off? Put them in your jersey pocket!
So there you have it, my advice for improving your cycling game. The cycling jersey and arm warmers: a winning combination.
