  • There are so many different helmets. Choose the one the fits you best. A CE-marked helmet that’s easy to adjust is a good bet.
  • Your choice of clothing depends on the weather and the season. But a pair of padded cycling trousers are a good start. A pair of gloves or mittens can make biking in colder weather more pleasant.
  • It’s easy to get sunburned when you’re biking in the summer. Sunglasses and sun cream provide you with excellent protection. Remember your ears, too. A buff headband or tied bandana will shield the skin of your neck from the sun’s rays.
  • Keep your telephone in a water-tight sheath so it won’t get wet if it begins to rain.
  • A map and a compass can help ensure that you won’t get lost.
  • Take a pump with you, as well as an extra inner tube if you’re going to be biking a long distance. A mini-tool with a chain splitter, tyre lever, stick-on patches, extra chain links, as well as silver tape, are good things to have in your rucksack.
  • A first aid kit is always smart to have in the event of an accident.
  • Anti-mosquito products will keep away pesky uninvited guests.
