Whether you want to look like Wiggo or Trott, or just need a new pair of shorts to get sweaty in, we have the kit for you

1. Team GB jersey

£65, adidas.com

You might not be as quick as Wiggins, Trott or Hoy, but you can at least attempt to look the part by wearing their clobber. Due back in the shops soon.

2. Vaude Contour gloves

£22, vaude.com

Not all surfaces are as smooth as the Olympic Velodrome. These have ergonomic silicon pads to give great hold and help minimise shock through your frame.

3. Ronhill Vizion Windlite jacket

£50, johnlewis.com

Lightweight, fluorescent jacket ideal for the commuter. It will keep the wind and rain at bay as the nights draw in.

4. Black Star women's jersey

£54.99, ananichoola.co.uk

Hi-vis is all well and, but often something a little more stylish is in order. This isn't only well-cut, but also has curved rear pockets for your pump and other gear.

5. Stellar women's jacket

£69.99, madison.cc

Waterproof jacket in purple, ideal for summer showers. It's breathable, so you won't roast. Long sleeves, high collar, waterproof zip and useful back panel.

6. D'Arcs Triple glasses set

£22, madison.cc

A good pair of glasses won't just keep the late summer sun at bay, but will also protect you from pollution and sooty car emissions that can get in your eyes.

7. Adidas Clima 365 2-in-1 shorts

£40, johnlewis.com

Lycra under-layer will hug your legs and bum. Outer layer means those who cycle to work don't need to flash their colleagues.

8. Rapha Country men's jersey

£80, rapha.cc

Made from high-wicking sportwool, so it will keep you cool on summer and spring rides. Available in the colours of Europe's great cycling nations.

9. Altura women's Ascent baggy shorts

£31.99, evanscycles.com

Lightweight and stretchy with a removable padded inner short. Perfect for comfort during a long day in the saddle.

10. Specialized BG sport road shoe

£69.99, specialized.com

Cleated cycling shoes aren't for everyone but this pair are ideal for newcomers. Not too daunting and they clip on and off easily.
