One question we often get asked by new bicycle buyers is "What do I need to carry with me when I ride my bike?" The list of five items below are the essentials that you should have with you every time you ride.
This is in addition to whatever clothing, shoes, gloves, etc. that you find comfortable to wear while bicycling, and of course, your helmet.
1. Basic repair and maintenance kit
Arrange these items carefully in your seat bag, so that any sharp edges of your multi-tool don't wear a hole in your inner tube!
2. Water and/or sports drink and a light snack
3. Cash and credit/ATM card
4. Personal identification
5. Cell phone
Most modern cell phones also double as a camera. If you witness or are involved in an accident, any photographic evidence that you collect could prove invaluable at a later date!
