What are the different types of bike accessories?
Knowing about the various bike accessories available can be all it takes for you to appreciate their benefits.
Bottles and bidons
Bottles and bidons can be quite helpful especially when you have to ride your bicycle over long distances. You can carry pure water or an energy drink in such a bottle and take a sip out of them while you take a break from riding or even while still on the road. This will help keep your energy levels up and keep your body well hydrated.
Saddle bags are among some of the most important bike accessories. That is because they offer convenient storage space for items such as mobile phones, keys, makeup and more. You can even keep important tools such as screwdrivers and wrenches for tightening loose screws, nuts and bolts. These bags often have waterproof properties to keep items dry. They also feature locking systems to keep items safe and secure. Saddle bags are both lightweight and easy to attach to the bike.
It is normal to have low tyre pressure after a few days of cycling. Sometimes the main culprit may be a puncture to the tube or a damaged air knob. Regardless of the cause of the low pressure, it is important for you to have a portable pump for inflating your tyres at any point. Pumps are available in different sizes and can easily attach to different parts of the bike including the frame.
Baskets and backpacks
Baskets can be attached on the front or rear part of the bicycle depending on its design and the preference of the rider. Such a basket can be all you need to carry your groceries or other shopping items. Backpacks can also supplement storage space making it easy for you to carry even more items while going to school, work or when taking a fun ride across the countryside.
One of the most important things to keep in mind when you or a loved one is going cycling is safety. While being aware of your environment is a must, but sometimes unforeseen incidents can occur and lead to unnecessary injuries. A helmet is one of the bike accessories that can help prevent or minimise injury in case of an accident. Knee and elbow pads are also safety accessories that can help you walk out of an accident without so much as a scratch. These safety items are available at Cycling Emporium at reasonable prices.
Visibility and illumination
It is important to realise that there are many road users wherever you go and it is necessary for them to clearly see you in order to avoid accidents. Visibility lights and clothing are accessories that can help in making you visible to other road users. Bike lights are also important especially because they illuminate your path during dark hours or when the weather gets foggy.
Your feet are an important part of the body which is why you should ensure that they are safe. Cycling shoes offer the perfect solution for shielding your feet against loose rocks and other hard objects that may cause injury. Additionally, shoes help facilitate efficient transfer of energy from your feet to the pedals while you are cycling. Shoes keep your feet warm and dry in cold and wet temperatures while at the same time offering relief to muscles and tendons thanks to exceptional support and cushioning.
Cycling clothes are another of the bike accessories that you need to think about. Vests and jerseys help you maintain proper body temperature whether you are riding in cold or warm weather. Jackets on the other hand can be a good way to keep warm when temperatures drop. Cycling clothes that may also include shorts and socks make it possible for you to ride over long distances without experiencing any form of discomfort. Additionally, they help in making you more visible to other road users and that effectively minimises chances of accidents. It is worth pointing out that when you are wearing comfortably, you are more likely to achieve better performance.
Cycling sunglasses come in a variety of sizes, designs and prices. There are prescription cycling sunglasses that help ensure clear vision. There are also regular cycling sunglasses that help block out the elements that may otherwise compromise your visibility. Remember too much light or glare can cause poor vision and that can lead to unnecessary accidents. Sunglasses also block out things such as dust, water, snow and other particles that may enter into your eyes. It is equally important to realize that sunglasses act as a shield against direct sunlight and this helps reduce migraines and other health complications that may be caused by ultraviolet rays.
Other bike accessories
Cycling smartwatches can help you keep track of time and enable you to calculate the amount of calories you lose over a given period of time. Such watches help you stay on track with regards to your fitness goals. There are also accessories such as knee and arm warmers that help keep you comfortable even when the temperatures drop significantly. Bike locks allow you to secure your bicycle when stepping into the shopping mall or if you have to leave it at the park to rush somewhere else.
