Pimp your ride with these essential accessories. Lights are a legal requirement for night-riding. Helmets are a good precaution – as are a couple of sturdy locks. New Schwalbe tyres will make punctures a problem of the past. Panniers and pannier racks take the load off your back and onto the bike. Pumps keep you pumped while saddles keep your soft bits soft. Plus mudguards and cycling gloves will keep both body and bike clean and dry – even in a British summer!
