Apart from choosing a suitable bike, bike accessories are also very important for bikers.


Helmets are required for all cyclists, regardless of age. Before you decide to risk riding without a helmet, remember that helmets are made to do one thing—protect you from head injuries and most importantly, prevent a potentially fatal one.


Following a helmet, daytime running lights are a crucial piece of equipment to have when cycling. Using your lights properly will reduce the possibility of accidents with other vehicles. Bontrager DRLs are designed specifically for visibility and can be seen from up to 2 kilometers away at all times of the day, even when the sun is shining.

Flat Kit

Flat tires are a reality of riding, but when dealing with this situation, not everyone can do it. With the right gear and a little knowledge, you’ll never get stranded because of a puncture. Your flat kit should contain a spare tube, a way to inflate it (CO2 cartridges and an inflator or mini-pump), a multi-tool, tire levers, and patches.

It’s never fun to run out of energy on the road because hunger severely impairs your ability to manage and concentrate. It’s a good idea to bring a couple of bars, snacks, and candies on your ride. And of course, don’t forget to bring water to keep hydrated. You should expect to drink at least one full water bottle for every hour of riding, and more depending on the weather, your intensity, and what your body needs.

Warmer clothes

What you pack for extra clothing depends on the season and where you live, but if there’s a chance of cooler weather or rain on your ride, be sure to pack some extra gear like arm warmers, gloves, a vest, or a rain jacket. Before riding, check the weather, carefully plan your route, and avoid letting your body get too cold or wet on the bike path.

Cell phone, cash, credit card, and ID

Consider these things to be your mini emergency kit. In a worst-case scenario, this is what you’ll really need. Always carry a phone, a little cash, a credit card, and your ID. Remember to fully charge your phone before cycling.

Happy riding.
