Use your bike to get to work

The right equipment for your way to work

All over the world, the volume of traffic is steadily increasing. When you live in a metropolitan area like Munich, Berlin or Amsterdam and your worklplace is not within your own four walls, you know how crazy it can be: Overcrowded underground, continuous delays and kilometres of traffic jams on the streets.

The good part is: there is a solution! Riding your bike to work every morning has many advantages. It helps you save a lot of money, improve your shape and reduce CO2. A fresh breeze can even replace your first morning coffee! The growing number of bike-commuters proves a point.

However, the real fun will only begin with some good equipment. In the following, we've collected all the equipment necessary for you to properly enjoy your daily commute to work. From practical cycle clips to the perfect bike for commuting, we've got everything you need.


Helmet

A good helmet is indispensable to make sure you stay safe in everyday traffic. An additional waterproof helmet cover keeps your head dry.

Wind and weather protection

There is no such thing as bad weather, only bad... Many people probably know this phrase. But the best thing is: It's still correct! Today, the manufacturers manage to produce clothes that are at the same time perfectly waterproof, super breathable and have a minimal packing size. A dream come true!


Lighting

As part of public traffic, you need proper lighting. On the one hand, you yourself should be able to see what is in front of you. On the other, and maybe even more importantly, you also need to be seen.

Everyone knows how difficult it is to see cyclists riding at dusk without any lighting. Stay safe – turn on your lights!

We recommend finding a spot in your Ortlieb bag and simply leaving the tools in there. It's like an umbrella: You probably won't need it when you have it with you, but when you don't...
