Over the course of the past year, one particular mode of transportation and hobby became a rising trend — biking.

Getting on a bicycle and riding for a few minutes suddenly became everyone’s choice of exercise and past time. This also became  the best way to get around for errands. Imagine, no fuel cost, no carbon footprint, and best of all, you get to exercise.

Switching to ride a bike from your regular commute and adding it to the list of your workout routine can be good for your health, cycling keeps us in top shape and gives us a taste of adventure while helping the environment.

Are you new to biking? Make sure to be safe on the road by following traffic rules, practicing hand signs and signals and checking your gears for damages to avoid unwanted injuries while you’re riding.

If you’re a newbie biker or already a beast at the road, here are SM Seaside City Cebu’s Seaside Tips: Biking Essentials that you need for your safe ride!

SM Seaside City Cebu is giving us Biking Essentials and Tips to guide you through any ride.

1. Safety Vest

Aside from safety lights on your bike or on your helmet, a safety reflective vest is an extra precautionary essential to keep you visible while on the road during night time or sunset rides, which are the best times for cycling.

2. Bike Gloves

When you are outdoors and sweating, bike gloves are helpful in keeping a good grip on your handle bar. It also helps provide extra cushion to lessen soreness during long rides. More importantly, wearing bike gloves can protect your hands during accidents.

3. Bicycle Led Torch

Lights are one of the first safety essentials you should get when joining the world of cycling. It helps in alerting other cyclists, pedestrians, and motorists while you focus on your ride.

4. Water Jug

Stay hydrated and make sure to bring a bottle of water and eat before hitting the road to prevent you from being tired on the road and prevent dizziness under the heat of the sun and other factors while on the road.

5. Multi tool kit

Like the tool box for our cars and motorcycles, we also need a handy tool kit for our bicycles that is versatile and can help us in case we suffer mechanical problems on the road.

Who said we can’t ride in style and comfort? A good pair of bike shorts with a supportive muscle compression and built-in padding can add help you have a comfortable ride.

8. All-around bag

Carrying weight on your back while you ride your bike can be tricky, so you need the right all-around bag to keep your essentials in place while offering you a light and safe ride.

9. Water Repellent Jacket

When we like going the distance in our rides, there’s no way one can predict the weather. So you need the perfect water repellent jacket made from a special fabric to keep you dry in case rain suddenly pours while riding.
