Biking 101: Why It’s Good For You & What Bike Essentials To Buy

Biking has gained quite the fame since the pandemic. It has become a popular sport and hobby among Cebuanos, young and elder ones alike. With Cebu’s mesmerizing landscapes and mountain top views, it’s the best reward for the long ride. 

No pressure though because you can bike as a mode of transport, a hobby, a workout, or do it on a competitive level and still reap the benefits of having it as a routine activity – a healthy lifestyle.

Whether you’re old or new to biking, you need to be all geared up for safety.
Stay hydrated, too!

If you have been wanting to try biking but unsure of what to do or what to have, don’t fret. Here’s a list of the biking essentials you can find from different stores at SM Seaside City Cebu. 

1. SAFETY VEST

Aside from lights, wearing a reflective vest can keep you visible while on the road.

2. BIKE GLOVES

Gloves are a great protection for your hands in case of a bike crash and will provide cushion to help lessen the soreness for longer rides.

3. BICYCLE LED TORCH

Lights can also be as important to your safety as a helmet. It helps in alerting cars, pedestrians, and other cyclists.

4. WATER JUG

Drinking water helps you hydrated throughout your long ride.

5. MULTI TOOL KIT

A versatile tool is every cyclist’s best friend! A multi tool kit helps adjust about any bolt and screw on your bike.

Keep your bikes safe with a keyed or combination lock.

7. BIKE SHORTS

A good pair of bike shorts with a supportive muscle compression and built-in padding can add comfort to your ride.

8. ALL-AROUND BAG

Pack all your bike essentials in a bag and you are good to go!

9. WATER REPELLENT JACKET

Waterproof, lightweight jackets are all made from a special fabric that keeps you dry and cool no matter how long your ride is.
