Helmets: Safe and comfortable helmets are a priority. Check to see whether you and your children’s helmets fit properly. You can shop our wide range of adults and kids helmets here


Bikes: Ensure that all of your bikes are appropriate for your size and your saddles are in the proper position. This will help to make your cycle fun and blister-free. (The Sustrans guide on selecting the proper bike for your child is a great resource for newcomers!) ✓

Bell: Having a bell attached to all of your bikes is helpful to warn other people on the path you’re coming and can help keep you and them safe. We have a variety of bells suitable for children and adults in store and on our website

Lights: If you’re riding at night it’s the law that you need to have front and rear lights. Even if you think you’re going to be home by night time you never know what might happen. So make sure all of your bikes have these fitted and that they are in good condition. Shop our light selection here

Pump & Puncture Repair Kit: Don’t let a flat tyre ruin your adventure! You never know when it could happen and you don’t want a long walk home! Be prepared and take a spare inner tube and pump with you when you ride. We’ve got pumps for at home and on the road in store and online  ✓

Snacks and Drinks: Riding bikes can be hard work! Make sure to take along something to keep yourself full of energy and well hydrated! ✓

Be prepared for the weather: There’s not much worse than riding when you don’t have the right clothes for the weather. Whether it’s just a bit cold or raining heavily make sure you have got the right clothes for the conditions. We stock a wide variety of waterproof jackets, gloves and other clothing to make sure your ride is as comfortable as possible. Check it out online here
