There are a few additional accessories you can purchase for your bike that will ensure you always end up defeating the elements.
A seat cover is nice and small, can be thrown in your handbag and slipped over your saddle if you arrive outside to find that it has been raining.
Whether you cart your gear around in a basket, panniers or a backpack, you can buy waterproof covers to fit each of these. This will ensure that all of your prized possessions remain in-tact.
In addition to a good set of bike lights it is also a good idea to build addition pops of colour into your outfit choice. This also gives you the opportunity to customize your kit in fun, creative ways. From reflective bows to chic high vis vests and reflective sashes, there are plenty of options out there.
