Lycra? Or not? (Or a sensible mix?)
Some cycle commuters choose the ‘uniform’ of Lycra, yellow jackets and helmets.
Others just go for everyday/work clothes.
This discussion covers many idea and reasons –
Clothing – ‘normal’ v ‘special’ on CCE.
CCE wisdom is to leave home wearing one layer less than you need for immediate comfort. The exercise will warm you up quickly. Layers is a key word for people who cycle.
For wet weather there are all sorts of ‘outdoor waterproofs’ – you may already have some.
Waterproof trousers are a very good idea. Some people cycle in shorts in (almost) all weathers and don’t mind wet legs!
