Trends Watch: Bike safety

Sarah L. Stewart

It seems with each passing day, the weather warms a bit more and a few more bicyclists appear on the valley’s roadways, sidewalks and trails. Even though we live in a biker culture, we sometimes need a reminder about two-wheeled safety gear.

If your equipment is starting to age, or if you haven’t yet invested in bike safety gear, take a look at some products that will help keep you safe.


This new helmet is billed for all things mountain biking, from zooming downhill to crawling over trails.


Intended for mountain bikes, this three-inch convex mirror attaches easily to the left or right handlebar of your bike.


These long-life, waterproof LED lights can function as stand-alone flashlights, bicycle headlights or helmet-mounted lights.


Keep your whole hand protected with these Velcro-cuffed gloves with light palm padding and rubber to protect the knuckles.


We all know you don’t want to get caught without enough water ” this pack will hold all your gear plus 70 ounces of water to keep you on the road or trail longer.
