Staying safe while cycling would have to be most cyclists’ number one priority. Whether you’re popping to the shops to pick up a few groceries or hurtling down a rugged off-road trail at heart-stopping speeds, you generally want to get off your bike in one piece at the end of it. For cyclists who value their safety, there are plenty of bike accessories designed to aid protection. Back in the early 1990s, Australia was the first country to impose mandatory bike helmet laws. That means now, all cyclists must wear a helmet, or risk a fine if caught.
While there has certainly been backlash against the law, and while wearing them may result in ruined hairstyles and sweaty heads, there is no doubt bike helmets offer invaluable protection to cyclists who come off their bikes. What about other bike accessories? Aside from other protective wear, such as padded bike shorts, and kids’ knee and elbow pads, you can find a wide range of bike accessories designed to help maintain your bike and keep it in good working order. You can find bike parts to fix your bike, and essentials such as bike pumps and puncture repair kits.
