Sad news, everyone: the weather is back to normal. And when I say normal, I mean wind, rain, gloominess and cold. I can only hope that everyone made the most of the good weather in the last couple of months, but even if you didn't, there is no need to panic.

This windproof jacket is not watertight but it will help you withstand a bit of drizzle and the wind out on the road. Recommended between 10-16°C, the Squadra is ideal for those late summer/early autumn afternoons. Close performance fit for improved aerodynamics.
Castelli Perfetto Light 2 jersey, Various colours | Special price £80 |
Was £140 | Save £60 (42%) (opens in new tab)
Same fit as the Squadra, the Perfetto is windproof thanks to the Gore Windstopper 150 fabric. It is also insulated yet breathable, and as waterproof as you'd expect from a short sleeved cycling jersey. The three pockets in the back are large enough to store all your race day snacks and water.

Was £58 | Save £20.30 (35%) (opens in new tab)
Chuck this under your shorts to keep your legs all cosy and to avoid muscle soreness due to the constant cold winds. The Nanoflex+ fabric gives plenty of stretch so you won't feel restricted. These thermal leg warmers are also water-resistant and breathable. Perfect for the in between season.
Castelli Omloop thermal bib shorts | Special price £75 |
Was £125 | Save £50 (40%) (opens in new tab)
The Thermoflex fabric provides exceptional warmth, strech and breathability. The Progretto X2 seat pad will give you enough cushioning on the saddle for longer rides. These shorts are perfect for the transition weather where full on thermal gear is too hot and short sleeved shirts are too cold. Combine this with a zip up jersey and you are ready to go.
Castelli Diluvio C gloves, Black | Special price £27 |
Was £40 | Save £13 (32%) (opens in new tab)
Diluvio C gloves protect you from the wind and the rain whilst providing ample grip of the handlebar on your road bike. The 3 mm neoprene insulation is not too toasty but warm enough to keep your fingers responsive. The extended cuff means you can tuck them under the sleeves of your jersey and all the rain water won't get into them in.
