Wind, flying dirt and debris can cause itchy, irritated eyes. Cycling glasses can be worn to protect your eyes from these elements, can shield you from ultraviolet radiation and the sun, and can increase contrast to help you see pot holes, rocks, and other road conditions better. Lenses can be made to change color with the lighting conditions to accommodate the time of day and weather you ride in. They can even be fit with a prescription lens.
You can spend from $30 to $200 for a bicycle helmet today. Surprisingly, almost all quality models protect equally well. How can you tell a good one? Look for a sticker inside the helmet that says CPSC. If it has this sticker, the helmet has passed rigid testing standards. All our helmets have passed these tests.
If you’re just getting going, the way to go is purchasing a pedal and shoe system; in other words shoes and pedals that are made for each other. To be sure you get such a system, you must make sure the shoes you purchase are compatible with the pedals you select.
Be ready to change that flat, if you plan on taking up cycling because the average cyclist has one once a year. You’ll need a spare tube, CO2 canister or pump and tire tools. The average cyclist can change a tire in under 20 minutes, while the hardened road warrior can do it in as little as 5 minutes. In any case, you’ll be confident to ride long distances knowing you can fix your wheels.
Also called a saddle pack, saddle bag or underseat bag, this fits under your bicycle seat and usually attaches to the rails of the saddle itself. Most hold small items like a multi-tool, spare tube, tire levers, a patch kit or an energy bar. Larger models can carry a few extra items. Keep this mounted to your bike to ensure you never leave home without the essentials.
