Just as the bikes we ride have grown more hi-tech, so too the safety kit we use has become far more sophisticated. Here are three innovative new products that are available now, but which point the way to cycle safety equipment of the future.
Here at cycleplan, we love all forms of cycling and it’s great to see people taking part in such a wide range of events from BMX, mountain biking, road racing as well as just for leisure and commuting. No matter what your preferred type of cycling is, it’s pretty much guaranteed to help keep you…
As we mentioned a couple of weeks ago, the increasing popularity of cycling in Britain has had some unfortunate side effects, not least a rise in bike theft. However, it’s not all bad news, police forces around the country have become much more active when it comes to the prevention and recovery of stolen cycles.
Seeing the world from the saddle tends to reveal things you hadn’t noticed, even in your own back yard (metaphorically speaking!). So with some great weeks of summer still ahead of us, there’s never been a better time to explore a new area of Britain — or abroad — by bike.
Yesterday one of our team at cycleplan took to the streets of Manchester with her husband and one year old daughter on the latest Sky Ride. Here she tells us about her experience.
