Road Wares for the Hardcore Bike Commuter

In honor of National Bike to Work Day, 2015, we bring the best road wares for the bike commuter.


Commuting by bike is more than just getting from A to B on a two-wheeler. It’s a lifestyle chosen by a community that includes everyone from spandex-clad hardos to models in sundresses riding Dutch-style step-throughs. The ever-growing population of commuters is becoming more inclusive with growing bike share programs hitting streets from Providence to Sacramento. If you’re a part of the fold or thinking about joining, these are 2015’s best essentials: bike, helmet, lights, tools and a hefty lock. And although the big back sweat spot is inevitable, we recommend always wearing it in good style. – Jeremy Berger
