Just starting out in cycling – What are the things I need?

Cycling is a fantastic way to enjoy the outdoors… when you have the right equipment. Often, those starting out will allocate the majority of hard earned cash to the bicycle itself. If you are on a budget, make sure you allocate enough funds to those often forgotten items, which will make your ride all the more enjoyable. Remember, your will ride your bike faster if you are comfortable. Below are some examples:

  • Quality pair of cycling knicks (bib and brace designs are more comfortable and less likely to put your great divide on display to those behind you)
  • Quality cycling jersey with pockets at the back for food, money and phone
  • Cycling shoes
  • Helmet
  • Gloves
  • Spares kit (tubes, patches, saddle bag etc..)
  • Mini bicycle pump
  • Bicycle fit (comfort is key, a properly fitting bicycle will ensure enjoyment)
