The Pad Queen

Can anyone beat this? I wear:

skate helmet
elbow pads
wrist guards
padding cycling shorts with extra padding for my tailbone
knee/shin guards
ankle wraps

I have never fallen onto my hands & knees and only fallen backwards a couple of times while learning.

I wear a kayaking life jacket to protect my back when I practice Wheel walking in addition to the helmet and extremity padding.

I wear a helmet when im riding mUni,the rest of the time i dont wear any pads. I'm considering getting some shin pads though, pedal bite sucks.

That pretty much "covers" it! I wear the same stuff, but my elbow pads are actually 661 arm-guards with the elbow built in. Gloves under the wrist guards.

When I sprained both wrists my first year of riding (frozen ground, it was) I wore double wrist guards for quite a while.

I'm at:

Bike Helmet
Cycling Gloves
661s
Padded Cycling Shorts

I've seen people that have worn full on face masks before, though, and companies sell actual body armor for cycling.

I used to wear all that stuff (apart from the elbow pads) when I was learning. Even when I was inside the gym.

Now I don't wear anything whilst in the gym (apart from the usual clothes ofcourse).

Whilst road riding I wear helmet and wrist guards - padded shorts (and camelbak) if going over 4 miles or so.

For xc/MUni I wear 661 leg pads too.

And sometimes if the wrist guards and leg pads have got their velcro stuck together it takes forever to separate them.
