With sunshine starting to peek through the cold, grey skies and the days getting longer, now’s the time to get the bike out of storage and start thinking about cycling again.

The big brands take advantage of the Spring surge in interest in cycling by launching their new collections of cycling clothing and accessories as well.

To help us sort the top gear from the rest of the pack, we’ve gone straight to the top. Chris Davies is the head of Tweeks Cycles, one of the fastest growing specialist cycling retailers in the UK. But Chris is not only a very smart businessman – he’s also a passionate cyclist – as the supplied press photo (right) makes clear.

We asked Chris to pick out his favourite pieces of kit from the Spring 2017 collections – and as you can see, he really knows his stuff.

    What make it cool?Comfortable but as tough as old boots

    Chris says: “Such an important piece of a rider’s clothing, if you are looking for comfort, performance and durability then take my word for it, you can’t go far wrong in adding a pair of Terraduro shoes to your kit bag. Even elite riders like Jared Graves, among others, are racking up the race wins with these versatile shoes.”
