Top 10 Must-Have Accessories for Spring Cycling Adventures

| By Simone from Davélo
From seasoned cyclists to beginners, these essentials will elevate your riding experience and ensure you make the most of the season on two wheels.

As spring slowly but surely makes its way back, cyclists eagerly anticipate getting back on the road after a long winter. However, the transition from winter to spring brings unpredictable weather, including chilly temperatures. Whether you're a seasoned cyclist or just getting started, having the right accessories can make all the difference in your riding experience. In this blog post, we'll highlight the top 10 must-have accessories for spring cycling, helping you make the most of your time on two wheels!


High-Visibility Cycling Gear:

With more cyclists hitting the roads in the spring, visibility is key to staying safe. Invest in high-visibility cycling gear, such as colorful jerseys, like the Podium Jersey in Pourpre by Le Braquet, to make sure you're seen by drivers and other cyclists.


Bike Lights:

Even if you're only planning on riding during the day, it's essential to have bike lights on hand for unexpected low-light conditions or early morning rides. Opt for bright LED lights with multiple settings for maximum visibility, like these Specialized Flash Combo lights.


Cycling Vests:

Despite the arrival of spring, Canada’s weather can still be quite brisk, especially in the mornings and evenings. Invest in a high-quality vest or jacket designed to keep you warm and block out wind, like this Vagabonde vest from Le Braquet.


Cycling Shorts with Padding:

Long rides can be tough on your bottom, especially after a long winter not riding a bike or riding on indoor bike in a static position, but padded cycling shorts can provide the extra cushioning you need for a more comfortable ride. Look for shorts with moisture-wicking fabric to prevent chafing and irritation. We recommend these Assos bibs for maximum comfort. 


UV Protection Sunglasses:

Protect your eyes from harmful UV rays and glare with a pair of cycling sunglasses. While the scorching summer heat may not have arrived just yet, the intensity of UV rays is already peaking! Look for models with lightweight frames for versatility and comfort on the road.


Water Bottles:

Staying hydrated is crucial during spring rides, especially as temperatures start to climb. Invest in water bottles that can easily attach to your bike frame, allowing you to sip water on the go. We recommend getting 2 bottles so that you stay hydrated during bigger rides. You can also mix electrolyte powder in the second bottle to stay extra-hydrated, like this super high-carb drink mix


Tire Repair Kit:

Don't let a flat tire derail your spring cycling plans. Invest in a compact tire repair kit that includes tire levers, patches, and a portable pump so you can quickly fix any flats and get back on the road.


Bike Multi-Tool:

A bike multi-tool is a cyclist's best friend, allowing you to make on-the-go adjustments and repairs without lugging around a toolbox. Look for a compact multi-tool with all the essential hex keys, screwdrivers, and chain tools you might need, like this 10-function multi-tool kit.


Bike Computer:

A bike computer is an essential tool for spring cycling, providing valuable metrics like speed and distance, navigation assistance, and safety features such as incident detection. With the ability to track performance, analyze data, and stay connected with fellow cyclists, a bike computer enhances both the enjoyment and safety of your rides, motivating you to push your limits and explore new routes with confidence. Whether you're looking for a smart, high-performance computer or something simpler that keeps you informed of your speed and mileage, you've got plenty of choice here.


Bike Cleaning Supplies:

A cleaning kit for spring cycling is essential to maintain bike performance, longevity, and overall riding enjoyment by ensuring proper maintenance and care after winter storage. We recommend that waterless spray cleaner that can be used whenever your bike needs a little care and attention! And who says waterless says time-saving and efficiency! 


With the right apparel and accessories, spring cycling can be an exhilarating and enjoyable experience for riders of all levels. Whether you're gearing up for a long-distance adventure or simply commuting to work, investing in quality gear can help you make the most of your time on two wheels. So grab your bike, hit the road, and embrace the beauty of spring cycling!
