We’re starting this list off at an obvious place. A good bike lock can save you a lot of pain in the long run. Having your bike stolen can cause a lot of aggravation and that can be easily avoided with a bit of investment.
We sell a selection of bike locks, but the main thing is that you buy a sturdy lock and chain that will protect your bike wherever you leave it.
2. A satnav.
Ever been out for a long ride and realised that you’re lost? Mapping out the route beforehand can seem simply but riding it is often a lot more difficult!
A satnav makes trying out new routes easy and means that you’ll be able to find your way home at any point. It’s also a great way to track your training, as many satnavs offer the ability to upload your rides and track your progress over a long period of time.
3. Powerful bike lights.
As the winter draws closer and the evenings get darker, a good set of bike lights is crucial to staying safe on your bike. We offer a wide range of bike lights, many of which have long battery lives or are even solar powered (just make sure you charge them during the day!).
Not only do bike lights help you see hazards on the road, but they also help others see you. This is especially important when cycling around vehicles. It’s a cheap way to make sure that you’re safe on those evening rides!
4. A mobile phone mount.
Having your mobile phone with you on your roads is essential. You never know when you might get into trouble and need to call someone or even just double check that you’re following the correct route. It may even be as simple as needing your phone to pair your wireless headphones with!
Whatever the reason, a secure mobile phone mount means you can easily keep track of whatever you need to without having to stop and take your phone out of a bag or pocket. Also, taking a bag or other carrier can be cumbersome so a phone mount gives you one less reason to need one.
