A coat strictly for those who don't want to look like they are wearing cycling kit, this Water off a Ducks Back Livia Cycle Coat isn't a standard short cut waterproof shell or hi viz zip up affair, it's a long, belted Macintosh style coat.
As such, our photos don't really do it justice, since I didn't dress as I would have to wear such a coat in real life, not was I actually photographed on a laid back café cruiser pedaling in a relaxed and stylish manner. So, please bear in mind it probably doesn't look 'at home' on me!
These Rapha Women's Winter Tights are designed for those looking to ride in comfort all winter long, no matter what the conditions.
They're made from high quality Italian Thermoroubaix fabric, which has a soft fleecy backing to it for warmth and moisture wicking properties.
The Bell Strut Helmet is aimed squarely at the female leisure cyclist, or women just starting out in riding, and offers an attractive price tag and some female specific features to entice the first-time buyer. Sub £35 is a great price for an entry level helmet with all the safety credentials you could want.
Spot on if you ask me.
I went to the National RR this year and the start of the womens race was a shambles, the guy from BC Yorkshire saying "Hurry up girls, get organised" when he was at fault for making them wait at the wrong area etc.
