8 Budget-Friendly Bike Essentials For Beginners

8 Budget-Friendly Bike Essentials For Beginners

As public transport cuts down to a minimum, commuters resort to alternatives to get from point A to B - biking.  This new landscape transformed cycling from a recreational activity into an essential form of transport. And, emerging from this shift are bikers on their first few kilometers on the saddle. What to wear during rides or what backpack to use are questions we frequently receive.

You are not alone. More than half our workforce shifted, too, from riding jeepneys and tricycles into pedaling our ways to the office. Like you, many of us also just began our bike journey.

Listed are the most common budget-friendly bike essentials we wear and use to come to work, even on weekend rides.
