Bike Essentials for Your Ride

Explore Our Top Recommendations

We’re stoked that you’re discovering or rediscovering your love of cycling. Now that you've found the ride of your dreams or rehabbed an old favorite, it's time to choose some essential bike add-ons to stay safe and to maximize your enjoyment on every ride. Explore our recommendations for indispensable bike gear and get in touch with us for expert advice from our friendly, knowledgeable team of cycling enthusiasts.

Lights

Shine bright everywhere you go! Adding front and rear lights to your bike is important, even if you aren’t riding in the dark. Daytime visibility lights allow you to be seen easily by other riders and vehicles. We have a variety of lightweight, water resistant options, and we’re happy to make a personal recommendation and tell you about our favorites.

Helmets

Before you pedal off on your next adventure, use your noggin and invest in a helmet. Bike helmets are a key piece of safety equipment, but they can also show off your personality! Shop colorful helmets with fun designs or choose a helmet jam-packed with technology. Can’t decide which option is best for you? We offer free advice!

Pedals

Choosing the right pedals for your new bike is a mix of personal preference and riding style. We have clipless options for road and mountain enthusiasts, and we have flat pedals and toe clips for the more casual cruiser. Whatever your style, we can help with your selection, and we can install the pedals on your new bike (and cleats, if necessary) at no extra cost.

Racks & Bags

Take your cycling adventures to a new level with the addition of a rack, a pack, or a basket! The type of storage you choose will depend on what you want to take with you on your ride. Handlebar bags and frame packs are great for small things like a phone, snacks and tools, baskets are great for transporting groceries, and panniers are perfect for commuting or short camping trips.

Hydration

Keep the H2O flowing on your bike rides! Whether you are pedaling around the neighborhood or going for a long, grueling ride, you need to stay hydrated. Adding a water bottle cage to your new bike is simple and easy. For longer rides or mountain rides, go with a hydration pack - also great for transporting phones, sunscreen and snacks.
