The Cyclechic Blog: Advice and inspiration for the stylish cyclist

Tip 3: Legwarmers are the new bicycle clips


Legwarmers are a modern day alternative to the bicycle clip. If you are wearing wide legged trousers or boot cut jeans just pop legwarmers on over them and you will avoid any unpleasant chain scuffing. (Long socks work just as well)

An extra safety tip is to wear bright 80’s style colours. Your ankles are moving as you cycle so they can catch a drivers eyes, alerting them to your presence, more successfully than bright colours on your upper body.

Both Topshop and American Apparel do great legwarmers in a wide range of colours from bright pink to more subtle autumnal shades. For a slightly more stylish warmer of the leg go to hosiery boutique Tabio
