Autumn and winter mountain biking can be extremely fun; nature is wrapped into beautiful colours, meaning that you’re constantly surrounded by some stellar views. But the rain could be falling and the temperatures could drop, making it hard to motivate yourself to go out. With the right kit, riding in the worst of conditions can be enjoyable and we’ve partnered up with Altura to show you how to layer for autumn and winter riding.
Autumn and winter, especially in the UK, are often characterised by a lot of rain. It might not be heavy, but there is a lot of it. On top of that, the temperatures drop to minus degrees, making your mountain bike clothing choices very tricky. However, the basic winter wardrobe is really easy to build when you know what to look for.
In this video, we show off some great layering options from Altura's 2023 Winter/Autumn MTB range, proving that enjoyable winter riding is really a matter of just getting the clothing right. From DWR-coated softshells to thermal riding trousers - we covered it all. Have a watch!
