#CyclingWeek: Sportsister Loves Cycling Accessories

May 31, 2016

The thing about cycling is that there are just so many lovely things to treat yourself to. We’ve taken a look at the awesome VeloVixen website to choose our favourite accessories, so if you’re looking for something to brighten up your wardrobe or want send out some Birthday hints then read on…

Cycling arm warmers from £20.00


If you’re new to cycling then you might not quite ‘get’ arm warmers, but the thing is, unlike 80’s style statement, leg warmers – arm warmers actually have a very practical purpose. Slip them on when you head out and then when it warms up you can stuff them in your pocket or bag.

Arm warmers save the dilema of what to wear or indeed wearing two tops, and you can take them off mid-ride (with a bit of practice). Plus they will protect against the sun and some are so cool, you’ll just want them to style up your outfit! Find your perfect pair here: www.velovixen.com

Cycling socks from £9.00


If you’re going to do a fair bit of cycling, then you’ll have to come to terms with the fact that you’re going to get a cyclists tan, so you may as well embrace it and get some fab socks to protect your pasty ankles. There are loads of great designs out there and a good pair of cycling socks can help keep your feet comfortable, warm and dry too. Find your perfect pair here: www.velovixen.com

Cycling gloves from £15.00


Although most people wear gloves to keep their fingers and hands warm, cycling gloves have other purposes too. The padded palm will protect your hands and arms from vibration and bumps from the road and the soft leather fabric will help you grip when you need too (imagine sweaty hands on a hill!).

Not only that, but should you have a little tumble then the first thing you put down to break your fall is your hand, gloves will protect them from a nasty wound that will make carrying on painful. Choose a pair here: www.velovixen.com
