But if that kit is looking a little old or worn, or you just want some nice new kit to ride in, then we’ve trawled the internet to find the best deals on summer cycling kit available right now.
Santini Women’s Mearsey short sleeve jersey
Santini’s top of the range women’s jersey is designed with hot sunny weather in mind, designed to be breathable and aerodynamic, while still offering UV protection so you don’t need to put sun cream everywhere when heading out for a ride.
It’s rare that you can pick up anything from Assos for this sort of money, and it’s good that these ventilated summer socks are in white and black to make kit coordination that little bit easier.
Chain Reaction Cycles
Mavic CXR Ultimate jersey
With its super-sleek aero design, the Mavic CXR Ultimate jersey is principally designed with speed in mind. Just be careful with the sizing, maybe going a size down from normal for the best fit.
Lizard Skin La Sal 1.0 gloves
Lizards Skins is best known for its great bar tape, but also has an expanding clothing range. These mitts are well-padded with plenty of ventilation for hot weather.
Watch: how to dress for hot weather
Team Sky 2016 Women’s Training jersey
Team Sky’s black racing jersey is all very well, but these light blue training jerseys are one of the most attractive jersey designs we’ve seen, and should be extra visible in low light conditions thanks to the reflective white stripes.
Louis Garneau Course Race 2 bib shorts
These high-end bib shorts from Louis Garneau offer everything you’d hope for from a pair of £150+ bib shorts, with a compressive fit and moisture wicking abilities for riding in hot weather.
Altura Peloton short sleeve jersey
Altura might be best known for its Night Vision commuter clothing, but its standard road kit is worth a look too. This Peloton jersey sits in the middle of the range and is designed to wick sweat away from your skin in hot weather.
Giordana Silverline Bib Shorts
Giordana is one of the most respected names when it comes to cycling shorts, and these mid-range Silverline shorts offer a compressive fit for improved blood flow and loose mesh straps
Craft Cool Seamless short sleeve baselayer
With its non-mesh construction this Craft baselayer isn’t the lightest baselayer on the market, but has a losser rear panel to improve breathability.

This attractive yellow (or black) jersey from Northwave offers a slim aerodynamic fit and a nice breathable fabric, plus a few reflective details on the back.
Pro Bike Kit
Salice 011 Radium sunglasses
These lightweight Salice sunglasses offer all the features that you’d expect from more expensive sunnies, including anti-glare lenses for improved contrast.
Adidas Climachill short sleeve jersey
As you can probably guess from the name, the Adidas Climachill has been specifically designed for riding in hot conditions with “aluminium silver dots that conduct heat away from your body”.
Maloja Women’s Jamila short sleeve jersey
As you would expect from a jersey of this price, Maloja’s Jamila jersey features a special fabric designed to wick sweat away from the skin, but we also love the simple retro styling.

The Dare2b AEP Stage Race bib shorts are made from no fewer than eight panels to give an excellent fit, and has lightweight breathable straps so you don’t overheat on hot days in the saddle.
Tifosi Podium Clarion sunglasses
The frame-less design of these Tifosi specs helps to improve visibility when riding low in the drops, while they also come with a hydrophobic coating to stop water remaining on them in wet condtions.
Castelli Dolcissima gloves
30 quid is a lot of money to spend on a pair of cycling gloves, so these stylish Castelli gloves are a much more palatable prospect when discounted to nearly half price.
