Clothing Fail – Winter

By Angie Ng

When cycling in cold weather, we all know that it’s important to layer clothing, wear a wind jacket etc. Some people have other ideas though, so let’s explore these here.

Another case of overdressing…. And don’t you think that it might be a bit difficult to pedal in those snowpants?

What a lovely pink coat! I would hate to see if get caught in something or have dirty melted snow splashed onto it.
