We're sure you've heard it before, but the importance of bike safety bears repeating. Wear a helmet, people — there's no other way to ride. But we know helmets can be lacking in the style department, which is why we fell for this pretty piece of protective gear. The playful, colorful design on white matte background offers a stylish way to stay safe. Available at Publicbikes.com, $60
If you're bored with your basket or just looking for something a little different, we suggest this vintage-inspired leather handlebar bag for carrying smaller items (your lunch, a bottle of wine en route to a party). The stylishly structured carrier would suit any style or color of bike and make a fashionable and functional addition to your ride. Available at Adelineadeline.com, $320
Having a way to let people (pedestrians, other riders) know you're coming through is a must, but your method of announcing your arrival need not be boring. We love this cheerful red bike bell crafted from durable baked enamel and covered in white flowers. Available at Pylones-usa.com, $20
Want to know how fast you're going? What your maximum and average speeds are? How long you travel each day? Now you can — in a way that doesn't compromise your desire to ride in style.

Available at Knog.au, $90

Weather-resistant fabric, multiple pockets and reflective details add to the functionality. Available at Po Campo, $125

The basket is made from durable rattan and comes complete with a cushy pillow inside for optimum comfort. Once your pup gets a taste of biking, he may never want to travel any other way. Available at REI, $130

Made with waterproof fabric they're small enough to fit in your pocket, but practical for any time it rains. They also make a fun way to personalize your bike. Available at Publicbikes.com, $20
Heading to a dinner party on two wheels? Now you can easily carry that bottle of Merlot you're bringing. Just attach this handmade bicycle wine rack to the underside of your ride for easy transport.
