Ol man Winter, we’re not afraid of you!

So as the c-c-cold days of winter roll around, the best defense is of course the right apparel. I have only 1 thing to say to that-WOOL. It’s the perfect fiber as it wicks and breathes and it keeps you warm. …”But it’s so itchy…” Not necessarily. Both Cycling and Performance apparel is usually made with 100% oh-so-soft Merino Wool, or have a combination of other ingredients such as Lycra and/or a bit of Poly fibers. Lightweight and most important, machine washable is also a big plus. Personally i love wool-from the big warm sweaters to the lightweight performance gear.

  1. what part of the Burgh do you dwell in? This was posted on jan 8th and the temps are far from c-c-cold with record setting highs in the 60+ degrees. No wool needed maybe sleeveless jerseys?
