When I first got my bike, I was a bit nervous about taking it out for the first time. So that I would be able to enjoy being out on my bike as much as possible, I did some research on what kinds of safety items I should have on my bike. It was fairly easy for me to find some different types of accessories that were items that could help make biking more fun and a whole lot safer for me as well.
After I got most of the standard safety gear like a helmet and many other items, I focused on picking out other types of accessories for my bike. I found some great bicycle handlebar accessories that were ideal for me to use on a regular basis. There was a perfect little bicycle bell that I could use to alert others to my presence on the road and even a support holder for a stop watch.
With these different items, I am able to time myself when I go out on my bike rides and I can alert anyone that I am passing that I am coming up on them. Having these accessories makes biking around a whole lot more fun for me.
Since my children have recently started to ride bikes, I have been looking for the accessories that are necessary to make sure that my children are able to stay safe on their bikes. I started off by getting each of my sons a plain black helmet. The helmets were a constant struggle with my kids since they didn’t want to wear them and would fight me any time I tried to get them to put on these helmets.
Eventually, I decided that there was no point in trying to get them to wear these helmets since they weren’t ones that were comfortable or cool enough that my kids wanted to wear them. Instead of these helmets, I had them pick out their own helmets that they would wear all the time. They chose ones with much cooler designs that were great for kids.
Now that we have some new bicycle helmets for children to wear, I have very little problem getting my kids to wear their helmets. Since they picked out these helmets themselves, they are a lot happier about wearing them all the time. It is great to know that my children are keeping their heads safe when they ride on their bikes.
