Hi there-Im getting ready to leave for a 3 week tour from British Columbia to Baja California in two weeks.
This is my second touring ride- but first one in cold weather.
Being from San Diego there is little offered here as far as warm weather gear. I know I need a cap, shoe covers, a bib, a top and gloves. (to keep WARM and DRY)
There is SUCH a big range of prices for these items- my budget is minimal to say the least- (the ride is a fundraiser for a nonprofit).
My question is - will the lower end of these items keep me warm or dry?
Or where can I buy used items of these- I'll literally only use them a week or two and never again.
Or -are there riders out there with extra of these items that I can purchase?
Help, advice and direction appreciated!
