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.
