Temperature : 5 to 15 degrees, a typical Dutch day! Wind & rain….
As Dutch people, we are now used to it, and are no longer afraid of a wet gust of wind in our face the moment we get on our bikes. But to be well prepared, we advise you to start with a base layer to keep out the cold, if it gets below 10 degrees, choose a base layer with long sleeves! You put on a cycling shirt, with short or long sleeves. With regard to waterproof clothing, it depends on the precipitation, with light precipitation a normal cycling jacket is enough. But in heavy rain, we recommend that you go for a waterproof cycling jacket with cycling shorts that keep you dry while cycling!

Last but not least, put on padded gloves with long fingers and a hat. This way you are destined against the Dutch cold!
