Transparent Cycling Sunglasses
This pair of glasses is best suited for riders that often travel at fast speeds, over long distances and cyclists travelling on the road. There are times whereby you’ll encounter heavy vehicles transporting sand or you may travel past roadside construction and the debris on the road may fly into your eyes and affect your vision so this pair of glasses is one that is value for money that only cost $5 and you’ll have a more enjoyable ride.
For bottle holders, I think an affordable one would work just fine, and I would recommend Decathlon’s 2 most affordable waterbottle holder ranges, priced at only $5 each! The 100 Bike Metal Bottle Cage seems to be a little more stretchable compared to the 500 Bike Bottle Cage, however that being said, the 500 Bike Bottle cage has more colour choices available, which include Red, Blue, Black, White & Green.
When it comes to security, you definitely should invest a little more into it, especially if you’re not riding a low-value bicycle. I would recommend purchasing the U Bike Lock 900 which carries some weight and probably is made of a stronger metal. Decathlon rates this secure lock a safety rating of 8/10.
However, if you’re seeking the most affordable range, this bicycle lock retails at only $10 – you could consider getting the 500 Mini D Lock! It is not only affordable but also very lightweight and easy to carry around.
Front & Rear Lights
For night cyclists, this set of USB lights is the one for you! It has the highest lumens at 300 LM and it only cost $35, which is equivalent to $17.50 for each front and rear light. It is advisable to shine the front light on the floor as shining it directly forward would definitely blind any pedestrian or cyclist in front of you. YES, IT’S THAT BRIGHT!
If you find that carrying a backpack or sling bag to carry your personal belongings is a hassle, you may want to consider getting either the 100 Bike Front Basket 8L or Flexible Folding Bike Basket. Although the Front Basket 8L is 2 litres smaller than the Folding Bike Basket 10L, I feel that the 100 Bike Front Basket 8L may be able to accommodate more items as the basket opening is wider than the 10L Folding Bike Basket.
