1. Rapha Randonnee Shorts
The addition of six per cent Spandex to these gentlemanly knee-grazers means you can pedal all day without feeling restricted. Glowin-the-dark belt loops and a hi-vis material gracing back pocket and inside leg also add to the reflective properties of any overly-lilywhite legs.
£90 I Rapha
2. Water off a Duck's Back Cycle Blazer
As the name suggests, this smart Teflon-coated top is brilliantly water-repellant. It’s also flexible, with reflective panels under the collar, on the lapel and on the buttons at the cuff.
£180 I Wateroffaducksback
3. Levi's 511 Commuter Jeans
These slim-fit denims are perfect on or off the bike. Their two per cent elastane allows them to stretch, a NanoSphere finish makes them water-, dirt- and oil-repellant, and Scotchlite tape on the inside of the cuff makes for instant reflective turnups for late-night rides.
