Best Women’s Cycling Kits That Are Actually Flatteringfanyuying
It’s quite frustrating to see the lists of women’s cycling or bike kits out there to be pink, flashy, loud and absolutely embarrassing!
When I browsed Decathlon stores before embarking on a bicycle touring trip, I was so upset by the lack of options and pink embellishments everywhere that I said screw it, I’ll just wear my usual workout clothes and it turned out to be less than ideal choice in terms of bike clothing comfort!
The first time I rode for 500km somewhere in Asia, I was sore the entire trip and made it a mental note to always come padded with proper cycling kit. By proper cycling kit, I don’t mean kits and jerseys that cost an arm and leg. I would rather put that money onto my bike! At the same time, I have no intentions of rocking ditzy gurly pink floral cycling kit even if they look more affordable.
For years, cycling companies have been criticised for adopting a ‘pink and shrink’ approach towards women cycling kits. This general lack of proper mid-range products prevents women from advancing in their cycling adventures. It sends a message that you’re not “serious enough” to pay for products that are functional.
