Are you looking for a comfortable sweater for your bike ride to the office and have decided to shop online? Online shopping has a lot of advantages. For example, you don't have to go out the door yourself. Even when you are busy at work you can easily place an order. Usually the clothes are delivered within a few working days. Online shopping, however, works very differently than when you go shopping. Below you can read some useful tips to find the perfect sweater online! 

Think About What Kind Of Sweater You Need 

When you go shopping online, you often have a lot of choices. It is therefore nice to know what to filter on. Therefore, carefully consider what kind of sweater you are looking for. For example, the V neck sweater is very popular today. The V neck sweater is very suitable in normal weather conditions, when it is not too cold or too hot. For colder days, a hooded sweater (in Dutch, the country of the cycles this is trui met capuchon) is more suitable. Especially on a cold winter day it is nice if you can also put on a warm sweater while cycling. Pull a men's polo shirt (Dutch: poloshirt heren) underneath, and your outfit for the road and afterwards at the office is all set. 

It’s easy to ride in fair weather, but most people are hesitant to take their bike out into near freezing temperatures and icy rain. Believe it or not, a winter commuter can emerge warm and dry – with the right equipment. 

When it is cold outside, a pair of long underwear under some light pants make for better temperature control, and a shirt with a high neck helps protect vulnerable skin from sharp winds. A light hood also fits beneath my helmet when it’s cold and tucks into my collar when it’s warm. 

Gloves are highly recommended to help with grip when braking or shifting—especially when it is freezing or wet outside. I also keep a light rain jacket handy, and make sure to pack it when the forecast calls for wet weather. It’s light and breathable and keeps me from getting soaked to the bone. To make sure my clothes, lunch and anything else I bring to work doesn’t get wet, I ride with waterproof panniers. They’re a bit more pricey, but if you live in a place where it rains a lot, well worth the money. 

I always assume I’ll arrive at work either doused in mud or bogged down in sweat. To avoid a hypothermic day at the office, I bring a full change of clothes and a towel. I also keep a spare set of shoes and all my hygiene supplies at my work desk. 

Order From A Reliable Webshop 

It is important to order your sweater from a reliable webshop. There are many international online shops where you can order clothing. You can often judge the reliability of a web shop by its reviews. If the reviews are good, you can generally assume that the webshop can be trusted. In addition, always check whether there are any contact details available on the webshop in question. 

A Comfortable Sweater With A Sporty Look 

If you want to be sure of a comfortable sweater for the best biking attire, check what material the sweater is made of. A sweater made of merino wool, for example, is wonderfully warm during the winter. On warmer days, however, you need a sweater made from a thinner material. It is important that your sweater is comfortable, but a sporty look is also nice. Consider a slim fit sweater if you want to look extra sporty while cycling to work.
