Aldi’s now regular Special Buys have become popular with cyclists looking for some bargains, and this Thursday the value-for-money supermarket is selling loads of winter cycling clothing including jackets, tights, gloves and more.
Despite the unseasonably warm weather we’re currently enjoying, the colder and damper weather is surely on its way, so now is the time to get kitted up in preparation. And it looks like Aldi’s latest cycling sale has all the bases covered. Here are just a few of the highlights.
These Performance Cycling Trousers cost £19.99 and are available for men and women in a range of sizes. They’re described as having a water repellent finish on the outside and a soft brushed fabric on the inside. Inside is an anti-bacterial Coolmax padded insert. There are reflective details and an elasticated waistband and flat-lock seams for added comfort.
The £16.99 Winter Cycling Jacket is available in green or orange for men and coral colour for women, and is constructed from a wind and water resistant material that Aldi claim is breathable. A longer tail section covers your bum when in the cycling position, a full-length YKK zipper provide ventilation and there are plenty of reflective details.
This Cycling Rain Jacket costs £19.99 and is available in black or yellow, and both are adorned with a healthy smattering of reflective details. To avoid overheating there are ventilation zips and flaps, there’s a zipped chest pocket and soft fleece-lined tall collar. Available in a range of sizes for men and women.
Need a pair of gloves for the winter? Aldi will be selling these £4.99 Winter Cycling Gloves on Thursday. There’s fully lined with a Terry clothing section on the thumb (useful for wiping a runny nose or the sweat from your brow) with reflective details and a padded palm.
Keep the rain off your head with this Helmet Cover costing £4.99. It’s available in a choice or black or yellow colours and both have reflective details. Said to fit more cycling helmets with an adjustable cord to tailor the fit.
Lastly, how about these £12.99 Dexshell Waterproof Breathable Socks for cycling in the rain? They’re a lightweight construction with a nylon elastane outer sock and 100% waterproof Porelle membrane liner.
