How to Choose Women Cycling Clothing
For anything beyond casual rides around town, you’ll appreciate cycling-specific clothing.
Bike clothing makes for a comfortable ride—whether you’re on the road, hitting the trail or commuting to and from work. These styles can help you perform better and ride longer. Here’s what to consider.
Cycling Jerseys, Shorts and Tights
You don’t need to squeeze into skin-tight spandex covered with corporate logos just for a trip to the grocery store. But cycling clothing makes sense the more miles you ride.
A bike jersey of Lycra® spandex or other form–fitting material reduces drag when you ride. Many brands also offer cycling jerseys that look and feel very much like regular tops but include a few strategically placed pockets and zippers. Their technical fabrics enhance performance by wicking away sweat to keep you drier.
Stand–up collar to shade your neck in summer.
Front zipper for ventilation when your temperature rises.
Shoulders cut wider for arms–forward comfort.
Sleeves specially shaped for forward lean.
Back pockets for easy on–the–go access.
Longer cut in back for coverage when riding.
Reflective trim or highlights for night riding.
Additional features for winter riding:
Long sleeves for more warmth and coverage.
Denser, heavier fabric weaves and a brushed lining to add insulation.
These are distinguished from street clothing primarily by 1) added stretch for full freedom of movement, and 2) a padded crotch liner to reduce friction and wick moisture. If possible, try several on to determine what style best fits your anatomy and your typical seat position while riding.
Road-bike short features:
Panel construction: In the past, a greater number of panels (typically 6 or 8) correlated to a more comfortable fit. While this is still generally true, fabric technology has progressed to the point that the number of panels doesn’t necessarily mean “better” for everyone.
Padded liner: A smooth, soft pad of “chamois” (these days, all are synthetic and not leather) minimizes friction, wicks moisture, prevents bacterial growth and helps cushion bumps. It’s the most complex part of a bike short. There are a multitude of shapes, thicknesses and materials among brands and genders. Some general guidelines:
Multi-density, open-cell foam liners deliver high-end performance and comfort for long rides. Gel/open-cell foam liners offer greater recreational or mountain-bike cushioning but tend to be less breathable on long, hot rides. Closed-cell foam liners offer good performance at a lower cost.
Legs: Longer-cut legs and leg grippers prevent saddle chafing and keep shorts in place.
Waist style: Most road shorts feature stretchy but non-adjustable spandex. A yoga-style cut offers less-restrictive comfort and is available in some women’s shorts.
Tip: All of the bike-short padding in the world will not make up for an uncomfortable or poorly adjusted bike seat.
Mountain bike shorts: Sometimes called “baggies,” these have a loose outer short in addition to the spandex chamois liner. The waist is fastened by a button or hook-and-look patch for loose-fitting comfort. Pockets are also common. Choose these by their features and quality of construction, but also make sure the cut of the outer shorts feels comfortable and allows for full leg rotation and flexibility.
Bib shorts: Popular with cycling enthusiasts but a comfortable option for any rider, these don’t have an elastic waistband that can restrict breathing. Worn with a jersey, they look like any other bike shorts.
Skorts: For women, some brands make cycling skorts, where the spandex short is covered by a skirt. Skorts can be worn on the road, mountain or even around town.
Bike Tights, Knickers and Leg Warmers
For cooler temperatures, you may opt for cycling tights, which cover the entire leg, or knickers, which cover the knee and above. Just like shorts, many tights and knickers come with a built-in chamois and should be chosen using the same guidelines for fit and comfort. Tights often include weather-resistant front panels and reflective detailing for dark, winter rides.
For layering purposes, some tights and knickers come without a chamois liner so they will fit over a pair of cycling shorts with no problem. Additionally, leg warmers are a handy cycling accessory that can be used on the fly to make a pair of cycling shorts into tights or knickers.

The top 2 considerations when selecting a cycling jacket: Will it keep me warm? Will it keep me dry? Some cycling jackets will do both, but it is good to keep the following in mind:
How warm is “warm”? The jacket you select for winter riding in Boise, Idaho, will probably be different than the one you’d use for winter riding in Phoenix, Arizona. The level of warmth you are seeking depends on the extremity of the conditions. But don’t overdress; you’ll warm up from exertion during your ride. Jackets for maximum warmth will protect you against the wind and offer some insulation, mostly in the front and arms of the garment.
Is rain in the forecast? For rainy days, you’ll want a waterproof cycling jacket. These provide a longer back and sleeves cut for a forward lean; some offer an over sized hood that fits over a helmet. While these often offer less insulation (which can be offset by layering) and are less breathable than other jackets, they will keep you dry if you’re caught on a long, wet ride.
Not sure what to expect? For milder winter conditions, go with a highly breathable waterproof or water-resistant jacket. These are lightweight and offer wind and water protection; they can be easily stowed in a pocket or pack when not in use. Additionally, some cycling jackets can be converted into a vest via zip-off long sleeves. This feature makes for a particularly versatile jacket that can be used year-round.
Layering Your Clothing
For cool-season rides, long-sleeve jerseys, tights or warmers can all increase your comfort. Layering your clothing offers another good option.
The goal of layering is to keep your core body temperature consistent as you ride. Being too warm can be just as bad as being too cold because your body wastes energy at both extremes trying to regulate itself.
The 3 traditional components of layering:
A next-to-skin layer (e.g., long underwear) that wicks away moisture.
An insulating middle layer.
A weatherproof or windproof outer shell.
Bike Shoes and Socks
If using clipless pedals, choose shoes that work with your cleats (typically SPD or Look-style) and match your riding style.
Road cyclists should seek a lightweight, aerodynamic model with slick soles.
Mountain bikers need shoes with durable soles that offer ample tread to grip the trail if needed.
For the commuter or casual rider, consider a hybrid style that acts like a cycling shoe but looks like a casual “street shoe,” perfect for the office or coffee shop.
For wet or rainy rides, toe covers (which cover the shoe from arch to toe) or shoe covers (which cover the entire shoe and part of the ankle) are a great way to ensure your toes stay toasty. Both offer some wind protection or insulation, and many shoe covers will offer water protection, too.
Your feet can produce as much as a cup of perspiration when you’re pedaling hard. In winter, this can lead to cold feet. In summer, it can mean blisters unless you wear synthetic or merino wool socks that help wick the perspiration away. Avoid cotton socks for all but light workouts.
Wool is a popular alternative to socks made out of synthetic materials (such as polyester or polypropylene) for summer or winter riding. It is not only wicking, quick-drying (for summer) and insulating (for winter), but it does an exceptional job of insulating while wet, which is perfect for those who enjoy the occasional stream crossing or unexpected rainstorm.
Helmet: Don’t ride a bike without one. In addition to saving your skull, a helmet provides warmth in winter and shade in summer. Some models come with as many as 21 vents to channel air through the helmet for excellent heat control. For details, see the REI Expert Advice article, How to Choose a Bike Helmet.
Caps: These add insulation to your winter rides, while a headband or a thinner skullcap can serve as a sweat barrier and help wick moisture for a cooler head during summer riding.
Sunglasses: Protect your eyes against wind, sun glare, bugs and sand or grit kicked up by other riders or cars. Always use plastic lenses that cannot shatter on impact. Many sunglass manufacturers also offer styles with interchangeable lenses, featuring different colorations to match the light conditions.
Gloves: In summer, gloves with short-cut fingers are the popular choice. Most have a padded leather or synthetic-leather palm and moisture-absorbing terry cloth for dabbing sweat or a runny nose. For cold-weather rides, a pair of wicking, breathable, full-finger bike gloves are a must. Most also offer some protection against the wind. For maximum warmth, consider using a thin liner inside the glove.
Arm/leg warmers: These provide a little extra warmth while taking up minimal space in a shirt pocket or pack. Each is essentially a fleece or wool sleeve that fits over your arms or legs to cover exposed skin. Warmers should be slid on under your jersey and shorts and fit snugly to avoid slippage during a ride. When temperatures rise, they can be easily slipped off without having to unbutton, unzip or change anything.

There’s nothing worse than dry, itchy skin. Dry skin can happen any time during the year, but is most prevalent in winter (hence the term, “winter itch”). Find out why your skin tends to be dry in winter and how to solve dry hands, feet, body, face and lips year-round.
Why Do I Suffer From Dry Skin in the Winter?
In winter, low temperatures, low humidity and strong, harsh winds deplete skin of its natural lipid layer, which keeps the skin from drying out. The dry air from furnaces and other heating sources also suck the moisture out of skin. To keep skin soft and supple, your goal is not to add moisture to skin, but to keep moisture in. These 25 tips show you how to do this.
Dry Skin Tip: Keep Water Lukewarm, Not Hot
Hot water robs skin of moisture causing dry skin, so it’s best to shower in lukewarm water. If you can’t bear this rule — I can’t — try to keep your showers short and try showering only once per day. This also means skipping hot tubs (another rule I simply cannot bear). The hot, hot temperature, combined with drying chemicals, is torture on dry skin.
The same rule applies to hand-washing: Wash hands in lukewarm, never hot, water (this is a rule I firmly abide by). If your skin turns red, the water is simply too hot.
Dry Skin Tip: Moisturize After Showers or Hand Washing
Your skin will tell you when it’s dry. If your skin feels tight and taut, it’s time to add moisture..
Dry Skin Tip: Exfoliate on a Weekly or Semi-Weekly Basis
Here’s a tip I use during the winter months: Apply extra virgin coconut oil on your freshly cleansed face. Use a warm, wet washcloth to massage the oil into the skin. This works to exfoliate and moisturize. You can also use this method on your body. Add sugar or salt to the oil to make your own scrub.
Dry Skin Tip: Invest in a Humidifier
Ever notice how older people in desert climates look like leather? The moisture in the air is actually good for skin. If you live in a low-humidity climate or you are around furnaces in the winter, invest in a humidifier.
I once read that your skin needs more than 30 percent humidity to stay properly moisturized. A room heated by a furnace can have as little as 10 percent moisture. In the winter, consider sleeping with a humidifier in your bedroom. Keep doors closed so the moist air doesn’t escape the room.
Dry Skin Tip: Use a Facial Mask for Dry Skin
facial masks work wonders on dry skin and cost close to nothing.
Dry Skin Tip: Skip the Drying Soaps
Soaps can be drying. Stick with a creamy moisturizing cleanser that contains glycerin or petrolatum, such as Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Body Wash for the body or Purpose Gentle Cleansing Wash for the face.
Extra tip: Simply can’t skip the bath? Skip the bubbles, which can contain harsh foaming ingredients and opt for bath oils or oatmeal scrubs, which are great for soothing itchy skin.
Dry Skin Tip: Baby Your Hands
Hands and feet can suffer terribly from dry, itchy skin. Put on moisturizer and gloves BEFORE you head outdoors in the winter, and consider lathering up your feet in thick moisturizer and sleeping in cotton socks at night.
Dry Skin Tip: How To Soften Dry, Cracked Heels
Dry, cracked feet are never sexy. To keep feet soft, cover feet in a thick moisturizer, wrap feet in Saran Wrap, then pull on a pair of socks for a couple hours. Try to sit or lie down while the moisturizer soaks in or risk sliding into a full split and pulling your groin muscles. The same treatment can be done on hands, except try plastic bags and keep hands in a pair of socks. A half-hour should do you.
Dry Skin Tip: Don’t Forget Your Lips
Licking your lips will not moisturize them and instead will help dry them out. Lips retain less moisture than other parts of the body, so they tend to dry out more quickly. A simple lip balm helps but if you have the bucks, try: Kinerase Lip Treatment (about $25).
Dry Skin Tip: Protect Your Face, Too
If you have super, duper sensitive skin, consider avoiding rinsing your face with tap water, which can contain harsh minerals that are especially drying to the skin (Dr. Dennis Gross once told me New York water contains a lot of harsh minerals, while Seattle water, for example, does not. Go figure). Instead use a cold cream like Pond’s to cleanse your face or use bottled spring water.
Consider Fish Oil Pills
New studies show omega-3 fish oil pills may soothe super dry skin. Patients who took fish oils pills in a study reported in Allure magazine, saw significant results within a few weeks. “You can see, within six weeks, the skin, hair and nails improve markedly,” according to skin expert Dr. Andrew Weil in Allure. Ever since I started taking fish oil pills in March, 2007, I have received numerous compliments on how amazing my skin looks. So there you have it.
