Here's What to Include in Your Kit

Helmet

Wearing a helmet is biking safety 101, regardless of your age.

It is the first piece of safety gear to consider, and in many states, it is the law to wear one.

Be sure to choose a quality helmet that is the proper size and fit.

Reflectors and lights

Having reflectors is not only important for nighttime biking, it is also a good idea to have reflectors on hazy, foggy, or cloudy days.

Reflectors can be worn as sashes and vests, or they can be attached to your bike on the front and back.

They can be solar-powered or battery-powered, and they come in all different shapes, sizes, watts, and fits.

Tools

There are various tools you can add to your kit to ensure safer, easier biking in the case of an incident.

The collection of bicycle tools you choose to add to your kit will largely depend on your level of biking ability, and the type of biking you’ll be doing.

Standard tools include a tire puncture repair kit, tire pump, and a pocket-sized tool kit, while more advanced tools may include a spoke wrench, screwdriver, and chain tools.

Biking exerts energy and burns calories, so it is important to stay hydrated. Always carry a bottle or thermos of water with you when you ride.
