One type of shirt that is perfect for summer biking is a polo shirt. There are numerous types available in different fabrics, including performance polyester with sun protection and lightweight cotton mesh.
That classic collared style comes in long and short-sleeve styles. But for your summer sports, you’ll like the short-sleeve variety. These are fashionable enough to pair with any pants or shorts.
Are you planning to bike during the cool evening hours? A hoodie is a must-have piece. Even when it is hot, a lightweight rash-guard hoodie with a UPF 50 can safeguard you against the sun.
A rash guard is essential after you get out of the water, especially if you stop in the middle of a ride for a dip in the lake. Even though you may not need one when biking, it will help if you pack a hoodie in your tote bag or backpack, just in case.
Styling your glasses for a summer bike day is all about finding a balance between function and fashion.
Choose a frame that complements your personal style and the rest of your biking outfit. Look for fun and trendy frame designs in bright colors or bold patterns like the ones from Andy Wolf x Lana Grossa collaboration.
You’ll find many suitable T-shirts for a bike day. Go for a Supima cotton tee for that maximum durability. That cotton species is twice as robust as regular cotton.
Its long-stable fiber weaves into the fabric, which is colorfast and sturdy, allowing you to wear and wash it numerous times. Also, there are solid-color tees with cool prints.
Another option is a T-shirt or a short-sleeve top made with a mix of spandex, modal, and cotton. That fabric combo is moisture-wicking and breathable and has a good amount of stretch for freedom of movement.
Cotton-blend and cotton tees can go with any type of summer bottoms, whether you prefer cropped pants or shorts.
Tank tops are also good for a cool summer bike day, even though you may wish to wear a rash guard tee on top for added protection against the sun’s rays. Also, you need to ensure you wear sunscreen on uncovered areas.
You’ll find cotton tank tops made from flexible, high-performance materials. The most vital things to consider when picking a tank top for cycling are breathability, comfort, and a sun protection factor of UPF 50.
With some pieces of summer aesthetic appeal, you can easily put together numerous outfits for warm-weather bike adventures. Those same outfits could be adapted to tennis dates, gym trips, and any other active pursuit.
