Bike accessories made by professional hands will give your ride that added extra! Anything that isn’t part of the basic function of your bike or the basic clothing of your body is generally referred to as a bicycle accessory. These various devices, gadgets and assistants not only make hard training sessions more enjoyable and effective, but also improve casual rides and your short daily trips too.

Some of the most useful and popular types of bike accessories for cyclists are described below:
Keep your bicycle secure: bike locks
A strong and sturdy bike lock is an essential for any cyclist. This cycling accessory is one that really isn’t worth trying to save the pennies on. As a rule of thumb, consider spending at least 10% of your bike’s worth on a lock. You’ll quickly end up cursing your false economy when you find yourself bike-less at the hands of an opportunist bike thief.
Keep yourself and others safe: bike lights
The other must-have bike accessory for all riders is a decent set of bike lights. Whether bicycle lights are a legal requirement where you’re riding or not, lights and reflectors not only allow you to see the road ahead during dimly lit or night rides, they also allow other vehicles to see you – protecting you from potential collisions with cars and other traffic.
Get where you need to go with a GPS device
A GPS navigation device means that you’ll always know exactly where you’re going – even when you’re riding on unfamiliar terrain. These gadgets can also help you to improve as a rider; as many display a wide range of ride and performance data that you can use to ride further or harder than ever before.
Tools for repairs & maintenance
If you don’t plan on heading to your local bike shop every time you get a flat, need more air pressure in your tyres or your chain needs degreasing, you’re going to need some basic bike repair and maintenance tools. The most essential of these are a flat-repair kit, pump, Allen or hex keys, Phillips screwdriver, tyre levers and a chain cleaner tool. You’ll find many of these will be included in a good multitool.
Staying hydrated: bottles & cages
Like any athlete, if you don’t keep yourself hydrated you won’t be able to give your best performance during that triathlon competition, your weekly group road ride or local trail session. Bottle cages, bottles, and hydration solutions and systems mean the difference between staying out and giving your all or heading home early tired and thirsty.
Carrying shopping & luggage on your bike
Even if you’re not exploring new territory on a long touring trip, cases and baskets are an extremely practical bike accessory to own. Handlebars and rear wheel baskets transport well-balanced shopping and a hard case luggage carrier will protect its contents from rain and the eyes of passers-by.
