Part 1 was here In many ways, part 2 is more important. Clothing is clothing - we all know we need some, but, depending on how hot we run, makes for very personal choices.
This year looks to be an interesting year - I'm pretty fired up for it already. It started a bit limply, but I feel I am getting into my stride, and my 300km DIY last weekend has given me a renewed confidence for the season ahead. One big issue for long-distance cycling is balancing time between cycling and home. It is clearly a pursuit that takes a lot of time.
