Warm up to WOOL!
To know wool is to love wool: that's my motto, especially on crisp autumn day trips, chilly winter commutes, and breezy spring training rides. Sweating one minute up the hill and shivering the next as the road or trail slopes downward, fine Merino wool fibers retain warmth yet breathe easier than many synthetic fabrics I've tried.
Women's Rhythm Merino Wool jersey, it was love at first touch. The soft, silky feel of the 97% Merino wool was like receiving a nice warm hug for riding your bike; the beautifully scripted spiral pattern reaching out of the back pockets and across the torso ensures we look as good at the coffee shop or food cart snack break as you do while riding; and the five--count 'em, FIVE--rear pockets meant I could store all my energy gels, electronic devices, keys, pump, windbreaker and arm warmers without ever feeling I was going to spill the beans.
True story: took this jersey out for a test ride on a cool Sunday afternoon in October on some of the well-known scenic hills in Portland. As my friend Maria and I were cutting through downtown on our way to Mt. Tabor, a woman rode up behind us and and said, "Excuse me: can you you tell me where you ladies got such cute cycling clothing? I love what you're wearing!" My answer: "BicyclingHub.com, baby!" Be prepared for similar questions and compliments on your 1st--or 50th--time in this gorgeous wool cycling jersey.
