Im riding in london and its cold right nowhanzypanzy wrote:Hi All,
Right, its getting cold and Im suffering from a total soaking feeling of sweat! Im struggling with how many layers and what top layer/coat.
I think Im putting too many layers on to begin with, the fact Im warm and comfortable at the beginning of the ride suggests so. 2-3hrs later Im a bit shivery as the sweat has build up on the base and second layer but not got out through the jacket.
Im wearing a very tight base layer (sub armour) with wicking properties, then a less tight fit 2nd layer again with wicking, over which the bib tights pull over the stomach area, then a water/wind proof jacket. The jacket is not tight.
After a few hours Im soaked from the inside out and the chill begins. Am I starting out with too much on and is the jacket not wicking well enough?
Thanks and Im sure Ive missed a post on this very subject somewhere, apologies!
Pretty sure its your jacket.Im using a merino base then wicking nike shirt and normal cycling shirt and on top my gortex jacket which really breaths well.If your top layeris trapping the heat you will sweat,simple
