First things first, if you're going to be stay safe on your rides. Protect yourself with the items listed below.


Protect your noggin. Today's modern bicycle helmets are better than ever: lighter materials, more vents and cool looks make safety look good.

Front & Rear Lights

New LED and battery technology is light years ahead of the old stuff. These new lights are WAY brighter, more powerful and longer lasting. Lights are a necessity no matter when you ride. Most of us only think of lights for blazing a fun trail & road at night or for cummuting when it gets dark early, but they are a MUST for day time riding too. If you ride on the road you really to invest in some new light technology to make sure you are always "SEEN" and so that you can always "SEE" everything to be safe. You deserve it. Be safe & have fun.

Eye Protection

Glasses and goggles protect your eyes from harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays, reduce eyestrain in bright conditions and protect you from flying debris and other hazards. They look cool to boot! Check out our selection below.

Pads & Protection

If you're not crashing you're not thrashing. Along with big ol' smiles mountain biking can lead to skinned elbows and knees so if you're planning on extreme riding pads are a must.


Suit up with the gear listed below and ride in style. More comfort means longer rides and faster recovery from long rides. 


Look sharp and stay comfortable while riding. With high-tech, breathable fabrics that wick moisture away from your body and allow maximum range of motion bike jerseys are a huge step up from riding in just a t-shirt.


A new pair of bicycling shorts can really enhance your comfort on your next bike ride. Stretchy material makes for easier movement and a padded chamois minimizes friction, wicks moisture, prevents bacterial growth and helps cushioning bumpy rides.


Soak up bumps in the road and make a more comfortable ride while also making a fashion statement. In warmer weather short finger gloves are the popular choice. Most have a padded leather or synthetic-leather palm and moisture-absorbing terry cloth for dabbing sweat or a runny nose. For colder weather a pair of wicking, breathable, full finger bike gloves are a must. 


Sure, you can ride a bike in just about any pair of shoes, but if you ride regularly you can benefit from shoes designed for bicycling. Compared to typical shoes, bike shoes are designed with stiffer soles to provide more efficient energy transfer as you pedal. Bicycling shoes are usually paired with a special pedals to secure your feet to the bicycle.
