Casual post-ride hoody that looks good on the bike too

There are plenty of city dwelling cyclists who prefer to shun Lyrca in favour of regular clothes and with those people in mind Howies have released the new Cromarty zip hoody.

Continuing their push back into the cycling market, this is the latest garment from Howies that could be happily used on the bike for riding to work or down to the shops while being a stylish top for post-ride relaxing. We just think it looks really good.

It's made from 96% Italian fleece and 4% organic cotton and has a mix of elastane to give it some flexibility when you're twisting and manhandling the bike around the city streets. Fit is described as regular, there are two side pockets and the hood has a drawcord.

Available now from www.howies.co.uk costing £59.
