A good base layer, and knowing how to wear it, is where a cycling outfit can really come together. You may start off your ride wearing four layers at 7am, but a few hours and 50 miles later, you could be a lot hotter and starting to feel like that cycling jacket and long sleeved jersey needs to come off. A cycling base layer is designed to work with the rest of your clothing, so it can act as the bridge between garments; unzip that long-sleeved jersey and you'll have your nice snug base layer underneath. Or, if you're riding in summer, a short-sleeved or sleeveless cycling base layer could be just what you need instead of a jersey!
