 Albert Einstein once said “Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving.” That is a true sentence to imagine how bicycles and life are very related. Riding a bike is not the same for everyone. Some people may find it easy, others may find it hard. This is the same in life. Everyone has different times in their lives where they go off track. They become unbalanced. Maintaining work-life balance is not a smooth path. Naturally, it takes focus, determination and skill to balance life.
 Bicycles also have a deep history or experience for most people, remember when your father taught you to ride a bicycle for the very first time? Furthermore we can say that bicycles are a part of our wheel of life.
 Let’s talk about today, the end of the lockdown has shown us new habits from many people in the world and the bicycle industry ripping the benefits. In urban areas some people left their cars and public transports for a safer and healthier way to move, in fact there is also a high increase of bicycle communities around the world. Bright future for the bicycle wear industry is happening.
 To reach maximum riding experience, we all need the right combination of clothing. We are recommended you to wear :

1. Bike Shorts

 Shorts made specifically for cycling will give you the most comfort while riding. Choose the shorts that contain elastane/lycra to provide great freedom of movement for your cycling motion.

2. Bike Jersey

 Bike jerseys made from a synthetic blend are always the best. Synthetic fabrics can be engineered to wick away sweat which will keep you dry and comfortable. Blends are tailored to suit specific weather conditions. Look for water-resistance, wind-blocking and breathability depending on when and where you’ll be riding.

3. Bike Socks

 Choose bike socks featured with moisture wicking properties, not only for comfortable function but to avoid blisters.

4. Bike Gloves

 Choose gloves which have good breathability, contain soft materials that prevent chafing, form-fitting designs, and tacky materials that maximize your grip.
