Road riding has its own fun since you can engage in a very fast riding with city view. There are some important things you need to prepare before starts your road riding adventure. Cycling jersey, short and helmets are among those things that you need. Here is a list of what to prepare!

Road Bike
You need to have a road bike for cycling on the road. It is because of course, the suspension on MTB bike will be wasting your energy as you ride on the smooth road. Road biking is a fun way to improve your fitness, meet up with new people and absorb your environs at a slower pace than possible from a speeding automobile. These bikes offer speed, agility, and efficiency. These road bikes usually developed with an aerodynamic design to help you gain the speed you need.

Safety Gear
Safety is important especially if you are cycling fast on the street of Singapore. The helmet is the first one. Riding a bike with helmet helps save the rider’s head from impact if there is an accident. The helmet also acts as a good fashion item for the cyclist. Especially if the colors or the look match the cycling jersey and the bike. At Rodalink we have a wide selection of helmets such as Polygon, Polisport, Giro, Met, Bell, and Limar. Other than the helmet, you should also prepare some bicycle lamp for rainy days or night ride. Lights will make sure the other street user will notice a cyclist in a low visual environment. Cateye and D-Lights are two brand selections of light that you can find at Rodalink store.
