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!
