When you are cycling, you never know when you may have to repair a loose chain, tighten a bolt, or fix a flat tire. It’s best to be prepared, so you don’t get stuck walking home. Carrying basic tools and essentials with you on your ride can save time and give you peace of mind in an otherwise frustrating situation. Here is a list of the basic bike tools and additional essentials to take with you on your next ride.
Items to take on your bicycle ride
Having these tools and essentials handy while cycling can get you back on track fast should a mishap occur. However, some times larger circumstances can come into play and small tools just won’t cut it. For added safety, consider bicycle insurance from Markel.
