Cycling in the city has never been so much fun. How many of you get excited just thinking about investing in accessories for you or your bicycle? We know the feeling well. Getting ready for a ride in town can be a fun exercise when you’re equipped with the ultimate cycling gadgets to make your life easier and better.

Whenever you stop at the traffic lights, you might look around and see what other people are wearing/have on their bikes and think, I wish I were that cool. Well, it’s difficult not to feel this way when you’re riding in one of trendiest cities in the world. Truth is, a lot of what’s out there is designed to enhance the cycling experience in the city.

We asked our team members to share the latest gadgets and fashion accessories they have invested in lately, and here are their top four hand-picked suggestions:

Beeline Navigation Device

Two navigation modes. Worldwide coverage (Google Maps). Ride tracking & sharing. Strava integration, GPX import. Automatic backlight for night rides. Lifetime app and firmware updates. English and Japanese supported (app).

The Beeline is a stripped-back navigation device that makes finding your way by bike beautifully simple. Beeline’s intuitive navigation interface guides you with a clear arrow giving you just the information you need to find your way. No complex instructions or distracting maps, just the information you need. Plan, save and share routes with the Beeline app for iOS or Android.

Goodordering Cycling Bag

The multi-functional webbing strap allows the bag to be fixed around the handlebars of a wide range of bicycles and quickly and easily transforms into a shoulder bag by unclipping the adjustable length strap. It can also be attached to the rack of a bicycle and used as a pannier bag.

Goodordering is a small independent company run out of a flat on top of a bike shop in Hackney, East London. Identifying a gap in the market for colourful, unisex bike bags, Goodordering was born. The first range was inspired by Japanese school bags and 80s retro travel bags. The 70s and 80s references also give the bags a touch of nostalgia.

Hackney GT Merino Wool Bobble Hat

Knitted in the last (still family-run) knitwear factory in Nottingham using 100% Merino wool. The wool is spun by Italian company Miroglio and has a TEC (Total Easy Care) treatment allowing the hat to be machine washed on a delicate cycle.
