So tough in Tribesports
cycling jersey
My husband has become a keen cyclist since we moved to the UK.  Since then, I have been trying to keep up but I am just not very fast or powerful.  (I think as a Spinning Instructor, I excel at 45 min rides not 8+ hours).  It was his idea to enter the Prudential Ride London in 2013.  I entered the raffle too thinking it would a nice opportunity for us to spend time together training outdoors.  But then I got a free spot in the raffle and he didn't.  Fast forward to 2014, and then same thing happens again.  At least James was able to secure a spot for a reasonable price in support of the London Cycling Campaign.

With the race on Sunday, I am very happy to team up with Tribesports to offer you a cycling workout you can perform in the gym.  Tribesports is a community -based company that lets their tribe cheer each other on, as well as choose new clothing designs.  Their #SWEATANDSAVE program means bigger discounts for you the more you log your activities and take part in challenges.  You can check out my workout on Tribesports here.  Give it a try and let me know what you think!

Tribesports was also kind enough to let me product test a few items from their womens range.  First is the womens longsleeve performance tech tee.  I love the different fabrics for different sweating zones, as well as the touch of yellow color.  It isn't too slim a fit and function well as a layering piece and on its own.  It also has reflective bits which will be very important in the winter months.

I also love the performance capris.  These have great range of motion and a bit lighter fabric.  This also means that the material doesn't quite work like Spanx by keeping everything tucked in  I am sure you are fast enough that no one has long enough to stare as you whiz by.  I find them perfect for summer running and riding brick sessions.  Again the splash of color and reflective bits are fantastic design choice.  Along the back of the waist is a handy zippered pocket for storing your keys and Oyster card.

The coolest piece of kit Tribesports sent over is the new cycling performance jersey.  Essentials include a zippered pocket, as well as longer material in the back to avoid skin/crack exposure.  The side paneling is very flattering and all of the material is soft (not itchy).  I found my body temperature was just right while wearing this out on a hill session in Richmond Park.  The zipper was easy to maneuver with gloves hands too.

See you at Ride London!
