- R540-road-pedals are reasonably priced and work well.
- Shoes something like these Shimano R088’s, make sure you have tried the shoes on somewhere before you order online!
Looking for some reasonably priced kit to get you started, yes you do need Lycra, forget the howls of mirth from your not so fit friends about being a MAMIL (Middle Aged Man/Maid in Lycra) after all what’s the option the lets do Brunch GALFY (Getting a Lot Fatter Every Year). One way to kitt two birds with one stone, is to join one one of the Dubai cycling groups or clubs, like CSD, Roadsters, Vixens or EKRCC. Along with the membership they usually supply a full set of Bib Shorts and Jersey, designed for our hot climates. Some of them even look nice as well. Just a shame Vixens won’t have me 🙁
SHORTS – DO NOT go cheap on padded shorts, quality ones like Gore Bike Wear are a must. Read this guide to understand the options any how much it matters
