As the nights continue to draw in and temperature begins to plummet, you’ll want to make sure you’re well protected as we ride into winter.
Whether the majority of your cycling is done on main roads or cycle paths, being highly visible and well lit is a must. Two of the most important accessories you should have this winter are a high vis waterproof jacket and some decent lights to make sure everyone can see you including those ‘not quite focused’ car drivers. Good lights are incredibly important, not just to light the road ahead but also to alert drivers and pedestrians of your whereabouts on the road. Unfortunately due to budget cuts and cost saving exercises in Swindon, we now have a large network of roads without lighting, if you use one of these routes its of even more importance to get yourself geared up to be seen.
The combination of a decent waterproof high vis jacket and a set of lights will get you noticed and most importantly keep you safe. In addition to these we also stock high vis backpack and helmet covers, these not only add to your visibility but are also great for keeping the rain and any winter elements off of your valuable cargo. After a long week of cycling why not grab a bottle of Muc-Off and treat your bike to good clean and if you haven’t used the bike for a while it might be a good idea to book it in for a service! We don’t require you to book in for a service, just drop into the store whenever its convenient!
