The UK cycling industry has seen an enormous increase in the use and sale of bikes over recent months.
Whether you’re choosing to commute to work by bike or have invested in a new pair of wheels to improve your fitness and get the family out of the house, cycling is a healthier way to travel.
There are several bike accessories you can invest in to help you commute safely and comfortably by bike. If you need to update your kit, Amazon has plenty of cycling deals to help you save. From bike locks to padded cycling shorts, phone holders to bike lights, these are the best cycling accessories now in the Amazon sale.
With nearly 3,000 reviews, the Via Velo Bike U Lock is a smart choice for those who want peace of mind when leaving their bike unattended.
Now better-than-half-price on Amazon’s Deal of the Day, there has never been a better time to invest in the safety of your bike. Designed for functionality and maximum protection, a U-lock is arguably one of the best forms of bike lock out there.
The Via Velo 2-in-1 heavy-duty bicycle lock system comes with both a U-Lock and 1800 mm vandalproof cable for maximum security – and at a great price. It has received a lot of respect from cyclists thanks to the pick, pull and drill-resistant double-bolt locking mechanism and debris cover.
While some of the reviews have stated that the Via Velo is slightly heavier than some other locks, many added that this is reassuring.
Today, you can get 15 per cent off Amazon’s bestselling women’s cycling shorts.
The BALEAF Women’s Cycling Underwear Shorts are a super popular buy for bike enthusiasts. Guaranteed to offer protection against saddle soreness, these cycling knickers will give you that extra bit of comfort to boost your game whether that be in your spin class or long-distance ride.
Made from soft, quick-dry fabric to absorb moisture, these pants provide great comfort and allow your skin to breathe and stay cool and dry whilst cycling. The non-slip material also reduces the likelihood of irritability caused by friction during exercise.
One delighted shopper wrote: ‘I wore these pants for the first time today at my spin class and OH MY GOD what a difference! Wish I’d got them sooner! No pain just blissfully comfy! Love them!.’
As a cyclist, being visible on the road is essential. The rechargeable Antimi LED Bike Light Set, with its front or rear option and anti-glare optical design, will make sure you’re seen.
The rechargeable light set has gained an impressive reputation on Amazon with 1,967 ratings and a near-perfect average score of 4.8 out of 5. Many reviewers have praised the Antimi light set for its impressive brightness, battery life and easy assembly.
One satisfied customer wrote: ‘Without a doubt; this is one of the best bicycle lights.’ He went on to say that it’s ‘easy to install, doesn’t require any tools, and fits very solidly on the bike frame. I tested the light in the dark, and you can see it lights up my entire back garden, and I have a 75-foot garden, so you can imagine how bright it has to be’.
Cycling gloves have both style and substance. Not only warming throughout winter, but a good pair of gloves can also improve your performance, providing extra grip on the handlebars.
The Zenoplige Cycling Gloves are covered with a large area of high-quality non-slip silicone, which increases the friction between you and the bike, improving riding safety.
Durable, comfortable and wear-resistant, the gloves will protect against cold winds and rain, keeping your hands protected and warm but never stuffy. The gloves are also touchscreen friendly, so you don’t have to take these off to check your phone.
This Babacom Bike Phone Holder is an affordable buy that will make a world of difference to your cycling trips. The phone mount has been cleverly designed with four silicone clamps to provide the ultimate protection for your phone, even on bumpy roads.
The Babacom Bike Phone Holder can rotate 360 degrees to provide the optimum viewing angles, so is ideal for going hands-free while using your phone’s maps. The super handy device is compatible with most 4.5 inch to 7.0 inch smartphones, including the iPhone 11 Pro Max.
One happy customer wrote: ‘Excellent phone holder, keeps my phone secure. Easy to fit on the bike, even came with some rubber for different bike handles. Tried with iPhone X. I’m very happy I can keep my phone in front of me and not in my pocket.’
