What to Wear When You’re Cycling


>>>WELL, IT HAS BEEN A
GLORIOUS TODAY’S WEATHERWISE. AND HOPEFULLY YOU HAD A CHANCE
TO ENJOY IT. WHEN IT IS COMFORTABLE, THE
NEXT TO YOU REACH FOR GLOVES AND HATS AND SCARVES AND COATS. YOU CAN STILL GET OUTSIDE AND
GET MOVING, JUST HAVE TO KNOW WHAT TO WEAR. TODAY, WE ARE SPECIFICALLY
TALKING ABOUT BICYCLING. WE DO HAVE RORY PAYNE YEAR OF
SALISBURY CYCLE.>>A PLEASURE.>>HOW ARE YOU?>>DOING GREAT.>>SO, TALK TO US ABOUT GOING
OUTSIDE, TRAVELING THE WORLD ON BIKES, WANT TO KNOW ALL ABOUT
IT, BECAUSE I KNOW NOTHING.>>THE MAIN THING TO UNDERSTAND
IS THAT EACH CYCLIST IS DIFFERENT. WE DO HAVE A FEW THINGS THAT
FOR MOST CYCLIST ADHERE TO HAVE A GOOD TIME. IF IT IS ABOUT 60 DEGREES, YOU
WILL BE FINE AND SHORT SLEEVES, SHORES, MAY BE ME WARMERS IF IT
GETS REALLY COLD.>>HOW SHORT ARE THE SHORTS?>>THE SHORTS, THE RIGHT HERE
BUT YOU CAN GET THE LOWER NEEDS SHORTS, GOING DOWN TO DAY. [LAUGHTER]
>>BUT GENERALLY SPEAKING, YOUR BODY WILL HEAT UP THE MORE YOU
EXERCISE THE RIGHTS YOU DON’T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT IT. ONCE ACROSS BELOW THE 60
DEGREES MARK, YOU DO WANT TO THINK ABOUT ADDING LAYERS, AND
IT IS A GOOD IDEA TO THROW ON SOME GLOVES AND MAY BE ARM AND
KNEE WARMERS THAT YOU CAN THEN PEEL OFF LATER AS YOU GET TOO
HOT.>>SO BASICALLY, YOU ARE
TELLING ME THAT CLOTHING CAN REALLY IMPACT YOUR RIDE?>>YES, THAT CAN IMPACT HOW
EFFICIENT YOU ARE. YOU WILL FEEL THAT IF YOU HAVE
TOO COLD OR TOO HOT OF A PART OF YOUR BODY, WILL MAKE YOU
LESS EFFICIENT TO TIRE YOU OUT QUICKLY.>>WELL TECHNICALLY, IT IS
WINTERTIME. SO WHAT DO I WEAR AS A RIDE IN
THE COLD?>>WELL, ONE OFFER SOMETHING TO
KEEP YOUR FEET WARM, THAT WILL BE THE FIRST PART TO GET COLD
IN YOUR BODY. CAN I REACHED OUT HERE?>>GO FOR IT, MAN. YOU HAVE A BAG OF GOODIES AND
VISUAL AIDS, I GUESS?>>YES.>>IT IS LIKE A WHOLE TOYBOX
DOWN THERE OF COASTAL.>>YES, I SHOULD’VE DONE THIS
BETTER BUT>>BASE WAS?>>EXACTLY, FOR THE COLD
WEATHER, BOOTIES ARE BETTER FOR THE 30 TO 40 DEGREES MARK. THEY CAN BE CUMBERSOME AND
HIGHER TEMPERATURES, BUT THEN, YOU MIGHT OPT FOR SOMETHING
LIKE THIS IT JUST SLIPS OVER THE TOP YOUR SHOE TO KEEP YOUR
TOES WARMER.>>HAD GONE. SO, DOES THIS SLIP OVER THE
ISSUE?>>YES.>>OR DO I WEAR IT AS A HOUSE
SHOE? THIS IS SO SOFT AND COMFY
INSIDE.>>YES, BASICALLY WHAT YOU PUT
ON YOUR SHOES, HE SLIPPED THAT OVER YOUR ENTIRE SHOE THAT WILL
PROTECT YOUR ANKLE, SOMETHING YOU WON’T GET FROM TOE COVERS.>>OKAY, SO WHEN YOU SAY THE
WIND PASSES YOU AND YOU’RE GOING FAST, THE WIND CAN COME
THROUGH HERE BUT WHEN IT IS JUST A LITTLE TOO COLD, YOU
WANT TO PUT THAT ON?>>YES, MOST OF THE SHOES ARE
MADE EVENT IN THE SUMMERTIME. YOU CAN GO TO GET MORE WINTER
SPECIFIC CYCLING CHOOSER OFFERED COVER LIKE THIS.>>SO, TALK TO ME A LITTLE BIT
ABOUT AERODYNAMICS. I KNOW THAT IF YOU PUT ON A LOT
OF STUFF TO KEEP WARM, DOESN’T THAT CREATE MORE WIND RESISTANT
SO IT IS HARDER TO WRITE?>>YES, AND THAT IS WHEN WE GET
MORE TO THE PERSONAL PREFERENCE OF CYCLING. FOR GUYS WERE NOT GOING FOR
ABSOLUTE SPEED, IT IS NOT THAT BIG OF A DEAL YOU’RE BETTER OFF
STAYING WARM. NOW, FOR THE GUYS WERE OUT IN
25 DEGREES, REALLY TRAINING FOR EVENTS OR TO KEEP THEIR
PHYSICAL FITNESS, THEY WILL HAVE STRICTLY FITTED TIGHTEN
CLOTHING, COVERING THEIR BODY TO MAKE THEM MORE AERODYNAMIC.>>SO THIS IS NOT A HOBBY, THIS
IS A LIFESTYLE?>>FOR SOME, YES. I HAD A CUSTOMER COME IN TWO
DAYS BEFORE NEW YEAR’S EVE AND SAID THEY HAD 160 MILES LEFT TO
GET 9000 MILES FOR THE YEAR.>>9000 MILES?>>YES, IF YOU WERE WILL
REMEMBER IT WAS IN THE 30s AND THEY WERE OUT THERE WRITING.>>I WAS LIKE THE EAST COAST TO
THE WEST COAST, BACK TO GET HIM BACK TO THE WEST COAST.>>YEAH.>>FOR THE YEAR?>>YEAH.>>I CAN’T
>>EXACTLY.>>NOW, DO YOU RIDE? I AM ASSUMING THAT YOU DO. YES, I RIDE WARM ON BIKES BUT I
CAN DO THIS. I DO HAVE EXPERIENCE ON A ROAD
BIKE.>>OKAY, WELL, SURE. WELL, AS FAR AS YOU WRITING A
MOUNTAIN BIKE, WHAT KIND OF PLACES YOU SEE ON DELMARVA? I KNOW THAT IT IS SEEN IT.>>YES, GENERALLY SPEAKING WE
RIDE DOWN TO POCOMOKE, AROUND THE COMPLEX WHERE NAYLOR MILL
IS FOR THE BASEBALL FIELD, THERE’S 4 TO 5 OR SIX MILES OF
TRAILS YOU CAN GET YOUR WRITING.>>WELL, THANK YOU FOR BRINGING
IN EVERYTHING AND SHEDDING SOME LIGHT. I HAD NO IDEA NOW I DO FEEL
LIKE I KNOW A LITTLE BIT.>>DEFINITELY.>>SO WE APPRECIATE YOU COMING
IN AND MAYBE I WILL GET A NEW LITTLE
>>IS NEED.>>SOME FUN OUT OF THIS.>>ISN’T HE.>>LISA, WHAT YOU THINK? WELL, COREY, I USUALLY LIKE TO
TAKE A NICE RUN BUT RORY HAS ME THINKING ABOUT TAKING THE BIKE
OUT FOR A SPIN. SO, NOW LET’S TALK ABOUT
GETTING AROUND ON FOUR WHEELS INSTEAD OF TWO. ELECTRIC VEHICLES ARE BROUGHT
TO SEARCH BECAUSE THEY’RE ABOUT TO DEBUT MODELS THAT CAN GO UP
TO 200 MILES BETWEEN CHARGING. WELL, TODAY’S ANGIE’S LIST
REPORT, WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW IF YOU’RE THINKING ABOUT GOING
ELECTRIC.>>ERIC IS ALL ABOUT EFFICIENCY
AND SUSTAINABILITY WHICH IS WHY HE BOUGHT A HYBRID VEHICLE
YEARS AGO.>>Man: FIRST, I THOUGHT OF
ELECTRIC CARS IS BEING ECONOMICAL GLORIFIED GOLF
CARTS, BUT THIS ONE HAS CERTAINLY GOTTEN IT OUT OF THAT
RANGE.>>IS NOT DISH THE HYBRID AND
GONE ALL ELECTRIC. HIS HIGH-PERFORMANCE TESLA IS A
SIX-FIGURE INVESTMENT JUSTIFIED IN PART BY LOWER MAINTENANCE
COST.>>THE OTHER BIG SAVINGS IS
WITH A PURE ELECTRIC CAR, YOU DON’T HAVE OIL CHANGES,
RADIATOR FLASHES, YOU DO HAVE TO CHECK YOUR BRAKE PADS, BUT
THE MAINTENANCE IN THE LONG RUN IS SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCED.>>AND WHILE MANY OF US CANNOT
AFFORD A LUXURY HI END VEHICLE, BOTH TESLA AND CHEVROLET HAVE
DEBUTED NEW EV’S IN THE AVERAGE PRICE OF A NEW GAS POWERED CAR,
AND THE SHOULD DOUBLE THE CURRENT EV’S RANGE OF 80 TO 100
MILES BETWEEN CHARGING. IF YOU DECIDE TO PULL THE PLUG
ON YOUR GAS GUZZLER, YOU MAY NEED A NEW PLUG AT HOME. YOU NEED TO MAKE SURE YOU HAVE
A PROPER OUTLET AT YOUR HOME OR OUTSIDE OF YOUR CAR TO CHARGE
IT. A LOT OF TIMES, PEOPLE USE A
120 VOLT OUTLET BUT YOU NEED A 140 VOLT OUTLET TO TAKE LESS
TIME TO CHARGE HER CAR.>>AND TAKE NOTE OF PUBLIC
CHARGING STATIONS WHICH ARE MORE NUMEROUS. ROLAND SAID HE HAS NOT CHANGED
HABITS MUCH BUT HE PLANS FOR LONGER TRIPS.>>AT THIS POINT, I WOULD BE
HARD-PRESSED TO GO BACK TO USE THE GAS CARD. WE HAVE NOT HAD ANY NEED.>>AND YOUR HOME ELECTRIC BILL
WILL RISE IF YOU GO WITH YOUR ELECTRIC BILL, AND THEY SAY USE
THAT IN THE RATES. IF YOU USE OFF-PEAK HOURS TO
CHARGE HER CAR. WELL, CALL HIM LOCAL MUSIC
REALTY, IS TAKING HIS TALENT THE BIG CITY. GED PEARSON IS ON THE MIDSOUTH
AUDIO STAGE IS A YEARS UP FOR A HUGE PERFORMANCE AT CARNEGIE
HALL. FIND OUT HOW IT ALL CAME TO BE,
NEXT.
