Over the past year I’ve learned to embrace the fact that traditional cycling clothes are quite beneficial on longer rides. They are cut to match your position, feature waist grippers to keep your shirt in place and the pockets are simply handy.

Now, the Dutch may be better known for their everyday, bike in your regular clothes style but that doesn’t mean there aren’t a few roadies and tourers in the bunch.
Road Holland jerseys are a merino/poly blend and come in understated colours… except, of course, for the orange Utrecht Jersey:
