    How much does a riders clothes and equiptment etc cost?

    Kate,

    In response to your question, it depends on how much you've got to spend!!

    For me, I had a budget of £3,000.00 and it broke down something like this....

    Bike: Cannondale Supersix £2,499.00
    Clothing: Bibshorts £74.99
    Jersey £44.99
    Socks £12.99
    Cycling Shoes: £214.99
    Shimano Ultegra Pedals: £64.99
    Cycling Computer: £39.99
    Bottlecage(s) £14.99 each
    Bidons (Bottles) £8.99 each

    TOTAL: £2999.90

    I even got 10p change (which didn't change my life)

    I suppose for a junior you may be able to get things alot cheaper. Just shop around, work out what you can afford to spend on a bike and accessories and don't be afraid to ask for a discount - most cycling shops will be glad for your custom and will be only to happy to help and advise you!!

    Hope this helps!!
