MORE KIT COLOUR!
I read the reviews on cycling tops in your December issue and can’t understand why cyclists would want to, or be willing to, make themselves invisible. All of the tops featured were dark in colour, although one was reported as being highly reflective – even though most winter cycle training is in daylight hours so being reflective doesn’t particularly help.
For me, the first criteria when choosing a top is whether I’m likely to be seen by other road users in it, and I’m really pleased that our club kit is yellow with a bit of black. So please would you review some brighter jackets for winter cycling? Simon King 220 replies: We share your frustration, we really do, but the jackets are what the brands all submitted. You also raise an key point, in that even during the daytime it’s important for cyclists to wear bright kit to be easily seen.
