Fall weather has finally hit the Bay Area and although this means we are far from suffering, it can make dressing for that daily ride a bit more difficult. Morning temps usually start out in the 30s before climbing to the high 60s during the day, with a consistent cool breeze. It’s too warm on long sunny uphills for a vest or jacket, but you’ll freeze coming down the other side without one. For those of us that get annoyed with continually having to shed or don layers, 7-Mesh came up with a solution–the Synergy Jersey.
Spring has officially arrived but you might as well call it summer here in the Bay Area. With blue skies and daytime temps reaching in the 80s, we completely skipped over arm and knee warmer season. While this isn’t great news for the Sierra snowpack, it does mean I get to spend almost every day on my bike(s). Here is what I am currently wearing.
For most of us, winter means simply switching from our road and mountain bikes over to our cross bike or even fat bike. Squamish, BC based 7mesh understands this–so built a bomber jacket to see us through the inclement weather season. With the goal of releasing a full line of bike apparel come February, 7mesh started with the Launch Edition of the Revelation Jacket. And what a start it is.
