So this year at the end of the first week’s racing and it’s another Brit leading the way. This time it’s Chris Froome holding onto a one minute and twenty-five second lead over Spaniard Alejandro Valverde and while we don’t all have their talent and speed we can get hold of all the latest outdoors gear to at least look the part as we improve our own health and fitness.


Yesterday it was Mark Cavendish, the “Manx Missile”, who was making the headlines, for the wrong reasons, being involved in a crash at the finish of the stage. And with Geraint Thomas still riding in spite of fracturing his pelvis on day one, it does seem that the Brits can’t stay out of the news on this year’s Tour. Well with all this going on I’m happy to sat watching but we really need to make the most of the weather and get out and enjoy some cycling but what to wear?


How about we treat ourselves to a new cycling top to look the part, lets see what is on the website at the moment; for the ladies the Dare 2b Ladies After Glow Jersey T-Shirt is an active fit technical jersey, prefect for cycling. It is made from a lightweight polyester honeycombed fabric, which has a great wicking performance and has an anti-bacterial odour control treatment.  In addition it has mesh ventilating zones built in and is quick drying too. Alternatively the Craft Cool Layer Cycling T Shirt could prove to be the perfect addition to your kit. The ergonomic fit allows for total freedom of movement and the fabric creates a soft and comfortable feel against the skin. The construction includes pro cool mesh panels in the sides and back that creates a super cooling effect and an excellent moisture transportation system too.


So you might not be leading the pelaton in France this year but with the outdoors gear we can supply you, you will be able to get out on the road and look and feel the part at least.
