Keeping Your Knees Warm

By March 6, 2008

Follow me on:

When you ride in cold weather, you should try to keep your knees warm. When your knees are warm, they stay lubricated and are more resistant to injury.

Most of us think that if it's a good comfortable riding temperature, we don't need anything over our knees, but I've heard that you should have them covered in temperatures as high as 60-64 degrees to keep them running properly. Even I think that might be a little excessive, but it does make me wonder if I should pay a little more attention to my knees.

The two most common ways to keep your knees warm are knee warmers and tights, both should be available at almost any bike shop.
