What are Cycle Accessories?
Cycling accessories are items that make cycling a better experience but aren’t necessarily a “must-have”. Think storage baskets, bells, water bottle holders, and more. These accessories are sometimes included with your bike but aren’t always there. If you are looking for ways to upgrade your bike’s safety, convenience, or comfort, you need to find cycling accessories that work for you! From cycling shoes to performance upgrades and even children’s bike seats, the right accessories can make a significant impact on your enjoyment of the sport. Check out some of the most popular riding accessories below;
Bike lights are a handy and protective bike accessory and a legal requirement when riding on the roads at night. Not only do they help you, the rider, see in dark or compromised riding conditions, most importantly, but they’ll also help other road users see you. Bike lights are designed for all types of riding. For example, mountain bike lights will usually offer incredible brightness to light up a trail at night literally. Simultaneously, lights for road cyclists are less bright for the safety of other road users.
Bikes are efficient machines, but they need essential servicing to keep them running reliably. Bike tools are a wide range of items from essential Hex Keys and pedal spanners to work stands and workshop specific tools.
Cycling computers give us a wealth of real-time information that can include speed and distance to more detailed information such as gradient percentage, heart rate, temperature, cadence and much more.

This encompasses a wide selection of cycling bags, including pannier bags, saddle bags, shoulder bags, wheel bags, bike bags and backpacks. There are many bags out there for all the bits and pieces that need to be moved around. Bike bags play a significant role in helping protect and carry your accessories or giving you peace of mind and ease when you travel with your bike.
Flats and punctures are an inevitable part of bike riding. Hand pumps and c02 cartridges are often essential items to carry in the event of a flat. They’re small, lightweight units that fit snugly on the down tube or into a jersey pocket. A floor pump is a better option for keeping your tyre pressure to the ideal level at home or work. Being larger in size, a floor pump is a breeze to use compared to a hand pump.
Referred to as bidon and bidon cages, these allow you to take fluids such as water on the bike and are essential for anyone doing more riding than just a quick trip to the shops and back. Bidons and cages come in various colours and styles to ensure they fit with your bike or kit.

Ensuring your drive chain’s smooth riding and longevity, chain lubricant is an essential accessory for all bike riders, irrespective of the type of bike riding they do.
Bike baskets and panniers help you transport goods, so you don’t have to take the car or public transport. Laptops, groceries, work or school lunches, etc., can all be stored and transported well in bike baskets or panniers. Panniers are particularly useful for bike touring, offering generous carrying capacity for those needing to carry more than the fundamentals such as clothing, boots, bike tools and spares, even potentially cooking equipment.
A great way to get the whole family moving, child seats can be installed onto specific adult bikes so the little ones can come along for the ride too.
