He cited some reasons why a biker should be in his or her proper biking attire.
First, on the side of the material, Orville said that it helps regulate body temperature since fabrics are made of polyester, spandex, lycra, or nylon which are breathable to help maintain body temperature and avoid skin rashes that usually happen when wearing regular shirts soaked in sweat.
The appropriate fit and cut establishes more aerodynamic effect and comfort during cycling and avoids soreness and discomfort, especially on long rides.
The aesthetic and visibility are of value too. Being easily seen is vital for cycling as it reduces the hazard of being hit by vehicles or fellow cyclists. Also, a very eye-pleasing outfit leaves an accommodating aura to surroundings.
Unity also establishes a common bond among cycling groups through team uniforms and serves as memorabilia that one can treasure for a long time.
