In my spare time, I love to get outdoors and keep fit. If I am not walking the dog, or running, I love to go out for a bike ride. Looking for the downhill and flat if I can!
Sometimes fitting everything in is hard work. So when I am short on time, I combine a few of these elements in one go. A run to the gym, with a spinning class in the middle, then a run home.
Ideally I like to wear the correct clothing for each activity. Joggers on for a walk.. Running tights on for a run.. Something nice and warm for the bike!! It is difficult to get something that is suitable for biking. I have always found cycling gear to be really expensive. Even though you usually pay top dollar for things they often don’t keep you warm and are not very breathable.
This week Aldi are coming to the rescue. With their new cycling special week..
The only cycling gear I have ever bought which was good value for money, and also good quality was from their cycling range 2 years ago. I still use it to this day.

About this post: I was sent a Cycle jacket and some Long Johns from Aldi for the purpose of this review. All thoughts are my own and I was not paid for his post.
