How to go biking in winter without freezing

It’s cold outside? You don’t need to be shivering. If you combine functional clothing well, you’re guaranteed to stay dry and warm – from head to toe and in any weather.

Whether on the road or in the forest, if you're planning to go cycling in winter, you need to wear warm and functional clothing. Follow the same rule as for winter sports: Layer up! Wear as many thin layers as possible instead of just one thick jumper.

The first layer is your functional underwear. Go for materials such as merino wool and polyester. They transport moisture to the outside any keep your skin dry. Seamless underwear is more comfortable to wear and doesn’t cause pressure points.

The second layer is the so-called mid layer. Your cycling jersey is a good option. If it gets colder, you can wear a thin sports sweater instead. This layer helps you stay warm and dry.

The third layer is the outer layer. It protects you from wind, rain and cold. Softshell jackets are breathable, which is a great advantage, but they're not suitable for wet conditions. Double or even 3-layer jackets will keep you dry, even in pouring rain or snowstorms. For very wintry conditions, jackets with insulation lining are great. Waterproof and windproof gloves and socks will make sure your hands and feet stay warm. When it comes to winter shoes, make sure your bike pants cover the cuffs and no cold air or water can get in.

In Marokko einsame Pointbreaks surfen oder doch lieber den «Never End» im Laaxer Bikepark runterdonnern? In der Reuss surfen gehen oder doch lieber Backflips über Dirtjumps üben? Dank meiner beiden grossen Hobbys finde ich immer eine Alternative, auch wenn das Wetter einmal nicht mitspielt. Freeride- und Slopestyle-Contests überlasse ich heute lieber den jungen Wilden mit Knochen aus Gummi und organisiere mit meinem Verein Contests im Bikepark Rüti. Als Category Marketing Specialist im Bereich Bike kann ich meine Passion auch in meinem Job täglich ausleben.

When I was in my 20's, I put on layers and layers to battle the cold to do my training. Now that I'm 50, the best way I've found to beat the cold is to wait for the weather to warm back up again. It works every time!
