Every time of the year has its peculiarities when it comes to going out on a bike tour. For many people, spring is the most appropriate time of year to do so because it is not yet too hot, but it is no longer as cold as it is during the winter.
If you also pedal in natural places, in spring everything is much more beautiful and full of life, for this reason, the landscapes have a very special beauty. But at the same time there are some drawbacks, such as the instability of time, how difficult it is to predict how the day is going to be and the unexpected showers that can come without warning.
Choosing the right thing to equip oneself without going too far to carry unnecessary weight but without falling short, is quite a science. And we want to help you with some suggestions that can be very useful for enjoying your bike rides during this time of year.
We don’t want to carry a lot of clothes when we do a bike tour, but you need to take some things, especially when during the day temperatures and weather conditions can change a lot, something common in spring.
Don’t forget that on our excursions you will only have to carry what you take to spend the day, as your bags will travel on their own from one hotel to the next and will be waiting for nothing when you arrive at your destination.
This is the list of clothes that we think you should never forget when you go out for bike rides during the spring.
It is important to wear suitable and comfortable shoes to ride a bike. Sports shoes must be light and flexible and very breathable. The socks have to be cotton to ensure that the foot will always be at the best temperature.
It is important to wear spare socks to change in case it rains and gets soaked or if you sweat too much, so you don’t go with wet feet for the rest of the day. Socks don’t take up much space in the travel bag and can get us out of a lot of trouble.
In the hottest hours you have to be careful not to run out of water supplies or not to get too hot. A thermal bottle coated to withstand the cold is perfect to have a cool drink when the sun is high and it is essential to replenish liquids to be able to move on.
Care must be taken to ensure that the food is fresh, so that the body does not accumulate heat and light so that digestion does not cause the blood to crowd in the stomach and we feel that the temperature rises too much. That’s why it’s good to bring some fruit to eat during some rest and not get to meals with too much appetite.
