It’s Day Two of This Cold.
The snot monsters are winning the fight at the moment. This is, officially, Not Good News. Tomorrow is my fortnightly Day To Myself (Capital D, capital T, capital M) and that means playing out on my Focus Fat Boy. However, with the snot monsters in the ascendancy I need to make sure I’m kitted out properly.
Snot-Busting Cycling Gear.
The plan is to try out a new 10 mile loop, mostly easy off-road stuff, but in this bobbins North-Western weather we’re enjoying there are a few recent purchases I’ll be testing.
- Sealskinz Waterproof Cycling Gloves, bought for £20 from Winfields
- Ron Hill Running Tights, £15 , also from Winfields
- Karrimor Long Sleeved Cycling Top, £11 from Sports Direct (or whatever Mike Ashley’s shops are called this week) – the picture shows my Decathlon short sleeved top but it’s too cold for that one
- DHB Base Layer, £20 from Wiggle
I suspect the biggest test will be the snot-catcher strips on the thumbs of the gloves.
This lot should keep me warm for an hour, don’t you think? I’ll let you know how they do.
