- Mini Lights £15
Lights are an essential item for every cyclist this time of year. Our Mini set of front and rear lights will keep you visible to cars when out on the road.

These lights are perfect for riding to and from work or down to the high street.
- Josephine and Joe Backpack £35
This backpack from Josephine and Joe features a hand drawn floral print from Liberty with a water-resistant soft lining. The bag is the perfect size if you’re planning a leisurely cycle around town or heading to work or the gym. The bag can fit a 14” laptop too.
- See Sense Lights £89
If you know someone who rides their bike seriously through winter, then a serious set of lights are essential. These See Sense Ace lights are exactly that. When facing moments of increased risk commuting, these lights react by automatically flashing brighter and faster to make you more visible to other road users.
- Dashel Cycle Helmet £79
Dashel helmets are manufactured from recycled materials here in the UK. They are slim, lightweight and elegant. The helmet has 5 air vents and comes with 2 sizes of Dashel's signature range of coolmax pads, which wick away sweat and are machine washable, to ensure long lasting comfort. Available in five different colours and 3 sizes, this helmet would make a generous gift for someone special.

These mudguards by Brick Lane Bikes are made from 100% Bamboo wood which is a natural yet strong material with water resistant properties. They’re a great accessory to match any elegant city bike build. Our Cytech technicians can fit these to your bike in our workshop.
