Welcome to the wonderful world of bikes!
Riding a bicycle can be a very positive part of your life, and once you start riding regularly you will find it’s a great way to stay fit, save money and save time on your commute. It also gives you a rush of endorphins and a feel-good factor that only being outside can give you. So you're ready to start riding? Reid Cycles have a range of great value accessories to take the hassle and expense out of gearing up to get on your bike.
If you’ve got the bike, there are a few basic things you’ll need to help you get the most out of your riding. Some of these items are ESSENTIALS – things that you really do need if you’re going to ride at all.
- Helmets and lights are a legal requirement in Australia (and make a lot of sense for safety)
- A bike lock is a must-have if you plan to park up and leave your bike unattended (especially in a city)
- Lube helps keep your chain clean and efficient between services, while a pump and tubes mean you can ride home in the event of a puncture instead of walking.
Do you want to take things a step further?
There are also some great useful extras we would suggest you consider once you start getting in a few miles – bottle and bidon cage to stay hydrated, riding gloves to protect your hands and minimise road buzz vibration through the handle bars, a multitool for basic rolling repairs, plus a saddle bag and/or pannier bags to keep it all together.
