thanks matt, guess the best thing is to have a ride where I go past my house after abut 30 minutes, then if I am too hot/cold I can always stop and put on/take off clothes

I'd always have a base layer and bike top beneath a jersey. Maybe two tips if it's cold. And I'd usually take a rain jacket in a pocket too.

You should feel a little cool heading out. If youre warm from the start - then you'll probably overheat.

ok, well, have to just give it a go and see what works for me.

I've only ever worn a base layer under the jacket, unless it was really cold (-6 once), then I wore everything I owned.

maths I had a long sleeved base layer under a long sleeved cycle top then my pirate jacket and was fine once I'd got going

totally tell the difference to wearing a running jacket

All received and it is great quality, fits really well, I love it but the only comment from my other half was that it looked a bit gimpy (monaco and cycle shorts not a cycle jacket), not sure if that means she thinks it looks sexy or not .

If our paths cross at an event or social I will definitely by shouting you a drink for all your hard work. well done and thank you.

i did originally think the sleeves were too long but they fit over my garmin and onto my gloves so no cold patches

my arse is still a bit big mind!

Many, many thanks  and hugs to Schmunkee and her glamorous assistant for all the hard work xxxx 

 Coz it felt like Christmas again!

Hope - the glamorous assistant was Jr as he has a far greater boredom threshold than his predecessor, And he does what he's told

Schmunks my Monaco and bottles arrived this morning. All great and the Monaco is fab although needs a bra to be suitable for public! I'm short and the arm holes are generous, fab quality too thank you very much.
