Wet n Wild cycling in Canberra winter

By Vonbare 8 April 2009 42

Now that the days are shortening, and the winds are chilling, I’m preparing for my first cycling commutes in a Canberra autumn/winter. 

I don’t have any specialist cycling gear and am wondering if any local cyclists (and given previous posts, I know there are a few) could give advice on what sort of jacket to buy. 

Something that would suffice me for the 3 chilly seasons would be great.

muchos gracias

Damart do still exist (it’d be Prime Time for them, I expect, with this brass monkey weather). The are on the Boulevard strip of shops (towards the eastern end of City Walk), basically midway between the good olde Electric Shadows & The Transit Bar (possibly elsewhere as well). I’m under the impression that they still do an insert of their catalogue/latest offerings in the CT.

& whadyaknow- google ads can deliver. These gloves seem to tick all the boxes-
& yes I was drawn to them because their name is “Ninja”! Hai!

I have a set of Thermolactyl gloves, they go under normal gloves for skiing, or can be used as outer gloves whilst cycling, I also have the singlet and the shorts, and picked them up from damart. don’t know if damart is there anymore, but they are by far the lightest fabric I have ever worn and are really great when bushwalking, under my thick wool pants, and my goretex jacket. I find that in winter, i can be soaked and still maintain a decent temperature.
