Why I Cycle

What Cycling Gear to Wear and


I like cycling.  Its good for me, relieves stress from work for one. Avid cyclists know there is a wide-range of cycling gear available to choose from. Determining what you will need means asking yourself some key questions.
• What gear is required by law?
• What gear will provide the most comfort for the bicycling I plan to do?
• What equipment is best for the summer/winter conditions?

Cycling store employees should be able to help you answer these questions as you look to purchase new or updated cycling clothing.

What gear is required by Law?

Nearly every government has a regulation or law requiring helmets for cyclist. Some states require them for all riders while others set an age requirement. A good, well-fit helmet could save your life. Whether mountain biking or street cycling, a helmet is a must have for anyone riding a bike.

Though not specifically required by law, many state cycling groups recommend wearing reflective clothing when biking as well. This is another safety benefit, ensuring you are able to be seen by cars and pedestrians. There are many site that can help out when looking at what cycling gear is available like amazon and also Things Cyclists Buy as well as many others.

What gear will provide the most comfort for the bicycling I plan to do?
Having a variety of clothing for cycling is recommended as what

you need is based on how long your ride and wear. Cycling shorts are great for longer rides. They help to keep you cool while you are exerting yourself on the roadway. Quality cycling shorts are made of special material made specifically for comfort and moisture control. They usually have a padded seat for extra protection and comfort for extensive riding. Choosing a sleeveless cycling jersey to help keep you cool on long-rides is also recommended.

Mountain bikers who ride through brush and trees should look for a long-sleeve cycling jersey to protect their arms from abrasions. Cycling shirts or jerseys worth their salt will be made of synthetic fabric that is comfortable, lightweight and moisture resistant. This will ensure that, whether long or short-sleeved, the jersey will help a rider maintain a good temperature.

What equipment is best for the summer/winter conditions?
Avid bicyclers hit the road during all kinds of weather, especially if the bike is their primary form of transportation. For cold days, a cycling jacket or a wool cycling jersey will keep you warm against the cooler air while still keeping you dry by sweeping the sweat away from your skin. Windproof jackets are also available for wind and rain protection. Coupled with cycling pants or knee warmers, which keep your knees and legs warm and flexible, these items will help you have a pleasant ride, even when the weather is less than ideal.

As the weather warms, your cycling apparel should mirror what you would wear on long rides. Good cycling or bib shorts and a sleeveless jersey will keep you comfortable and cool. You may want to carry a lightweight, compact cycling jacket with you in case your ride goes later in the evening than you anticipated or you start out your ride early in the morning. There are a number of jackets available that can be easily stowed when the temperature rises. Cycling jacket made of breathable material that incorporates ventilation, like mesh vents, in the fabric are ideal.

There are many choices in bicycle clothing and not all of them are necessary.  As mentioned check out site like Depending on what kind of bicycler you are, you may find that less is more. But, if you are seriously into cycling, then choosing a variety of bicycle clothing is in your advantage – you will feel much more apt to get out there on your bike if you have all of the proper equipment, including comfortable clothing that helps to keep your body temperate and dry.

Installing a new roof at home

Installing Cedar Roof Shingles

When installing cedar roof shingles, homeowner’s may sometimes be able to place the new cedar shingles over existing roofing material. Cedar shingles are durable and may resist insect damage. Cedar shingles are smooth and provide the home with a rustic appearance.

Before you begin, make sure that you have chosen a fair weather day. Avoid installing cedar roof shingles, or any other roofing material, if it is raining. Begin installation at the bottom and work your way to the top.

Steps to installing cedar roof shingles

First, apply building paper to the entire roof deck. We would be looking to use felt snd I’ve found an excellent felt that I’ve used before so Ill be using Texsa Roofing Felt for this job to begin with.

When placing the first shingle onto the structure, take special care to ensure that the thick end of the shingle is pointing down toward the ground. When installing cedar roof shingles, it’s advisable to use 2 rust-resistant nails per shingle. Make sure that the nail is placed 4″ up from the thick of the shingle and 1″ from each side. Wood naturally expands from moisture and, when inst

lling cedar roofing shingles, each shingle should have up to a ¼” gap between itself and the neighboring shingles. With each shingle added, make sure that each lines up properly with it’s neighbor. If you should have an excess piece of shingle on one end of the roof, trim it to fit.

The next row of cedar shingles will be placed above the first row. To ensure that each lines up properly, use chalk to draw a line signifying their placement. This should be a straight line atop the already placed cedar shingles. Install the 2nd row of shingles following the same steps as above, taking care to align each one horizontally. Continue each row of shingles atop the previous one as outlined.

Once you have reached the roof’s peak, place building paper on the structure before placing another row of shingles on each side. Trim the edge of each shingle so they conform to the peak of your roof’s structure. Installing cedar shingles properly will allow air circulation underneath the wood to prevent the shingles from becoming soggy or otherwise damaged.

Longevity of a Cedar Roof Shingles

Installing cedar shingles is a long term investment as they may last anywhere between 15 and 40 years. Their longevity depends on several factors, including climate and the roof slope. In general, a steep roof will allow less damage because the slope prevents rain and snow from gathering and causing damage to the wood. A flat, less sloping roof may allow elements to build up and cause added weight to the roofing structure. Excessive weight is not good for the structure and may cause a lot of problems, including the need to do an entire roof replacement.

Installing cedar roof shingles will give the home a natural covering, which can last for many years. Because wood is designed to withstand various types of weather and other natural occurrences, installing cedar roof shingles will require very little maintenance as the years continue. With age, they will develop a rustic look, which will add a touch of tradition to any home.

How people find cheap flights

Cheap Flights

Decades ago, the cost of airfare from one continent to another would have meant seven years of servitude for the average person. Today, booking cheap flights to Spain, or any country for that matter, has never been easier and never been cheaper. All it takes is a little savvy and a little preparation from you.

First thing’s first, when booking cheap flights to Spain through an agent, be sure to specify that you want the “lowest possible fare.” Be careful of specials since not all of them fall under the “economy” or “APEX” category. Also, there are agents – budget specialists – that are not as competent or as motivated as other agents in finding the cheapest airfares.

The Internet is your next best source of cheap flights to Spain. The Internet technology has certainly helped change the face of international flights. Websites such as Expedia and Travelocity make it easier for people to fin

low airfares to their destination.

Still, buying cheap flights to Spain on the Internet is not exactly the same as getting the cheapest price. It is the same as booking a flight with an agent – you may still get offered the lowest price, average price, or a test price. To make sure that you get what you want, then do some comparison shopping.

The beauty about all this is that it is easy enough browsing through many sites when comparing prices. At least, a lot easier than having to pick up the phone and calling every agent you can think of. This way, you can do everything yourself, thus ensuring that you get what you really want out of the bargain.

Below are a few good sites where you can find cheap flights to Spain:


It is very difficult to find cheap flights to Spain in the high season (July to August). But does this mean that it’s impossible? With a little effort, you can find sites like Easyjet that offers special flights to certain Spanish destinations for an attractive price.

For example, the following routes and prices are up on offer:

* Bristol to Valencia, Mallorca or Menorca – starting price at £35.99
* Glasgow to Malaga – starting price at £45.99
* London Gatwick to Ibiza – starting price at £40.99


For cheap flights to Spain at prices less than £35 including taxes, Thomsonfly is the place to go. The company has recently launched a promotion, offering 350,000 flights available at that price range. The destinations include Valencia, Barcelona, Palma Mallorca, Alicante, Malaga, Ibiza, and the Canary Islands.


Considered as one of the world’s most successful low-cost airlines, Ryanair offers flights from various airports in Britain, Ireland and other European countries. Flights to no less 14 Spanish destinations are also available with 46 new routes and one new base.
