This week the cold weather of Barcelona has inspired us to remember some tips for keeping on pedaling also during the winter.
From one week ago, in Barcelona, we have observed a significant descend of the temperatures, although the weather of this city uses to be between comfortable limits.
In any case, if we want to keep us pedaling during winter, to focus us in our clothes in order to avoid unnecessary colds is very important. In spite of the fact that when we do exercise we use to warm up quickly, so as to avoid the drastic changes, it is important to use tight clothes which could be made of cotton or some other material which should be breathable and comfortable. Over these clothes, in order to avoid the wind and, if it is necessary, the rain, we suggest you to use a coat made of nylon. If we wear various clothe layers, we can adapt our clothing to the corporal temperature during our trip.
Other important part of the body, which we should keep in mind, are the hands. A pair of gloves will be perfect for avoiding that the cold chaps our skin. It is also important to keep our feet warm, so the best we can do is to use warm and comfortable socks.
For your head, if you use to wear a helmet, which is the most recommendable, you will not suffer for it.
In spite of been winter, you should remember that being hydrated by drinking water is very important.
And, at last but not least, remember the front and the back lights. In Barcelona, they are obligatory, specially, during winter, because it gets dark early and they are essentials for your security.
Don’t be stopped by anything ¡Keep on pedaling!
