Back-to-school on bike

The parasols are put away, the school bags are ready, it's time to say goodbye to the summer and get ready for the new school year. It's a good time to make new resolutions, such as cycling to work. The advantages are numerous: you start your day with a bit of exercise and a breath of fresh air, you avoid traffic jams and you also have no problem finding a parking space. And above all, you'll be using an environmentally-friendly way to get to work. If you want to adopt this resolution, it's important to be well equipped. We've put together a list of the products you need to get started when you cycle. What's more, the products we suggest are eco-responsible.

1. A good heImet

It may seem obvious, but for your own safety, wear a helmet when cycling, because accidents can happen very quickly. It's important to choose a helmet that suits you too. To do this, check :

- The size of the helmet: it should fit but not be too tight

- The comfort

- The design

- The certification: make sure it meets European standards We suggest the Dashel brand, which offers recyclable helmets. When it's time to recycle your helmet, Dashel will take care of it for you.

2. Storage space on your luggage rack

When you're cycling, don't carry too many bags. Make sure you have either a waterproof rucksack or waterproof storage bags on your luggage rack. We suggest La Virgule storage bags. These bags are upcycled and waterproof.

3. A cape for rainy days

Rainy days will unfortunately soon be making their return. To make sure you don't get soaked at work, protect your clothes by wearing a cape or kway. We suggest the Rainkiss brand which offers capes certified as 100% recycled polyester.

4. A lock to secure your bike

Now that you're equipped and ready to cycle, it's important to secure your bike to avoid having it stolen. Several security systems exist, but we suggest the Kryptonite Evolution lock. It is rated 7/10 on the security scale, which corresponds to a high level.
