Pimp Your Ride: The Coolest Cycling Gear for Your Central Coast Adventure

On the Central Coast, almost every day is a good cycling day—mild, temperate weather, a variety of routes, and unique stops and sights make for great rides time and time again. Whether you’re embarking on a short ride down the coast or a longer ride through the hills, make sure you have the right gear and accessories to help your ride go as smoothly as possible.

1. Saddle bag

Saddle bags are great for small items that you don’t want to dig for, or for when your larger bags simply aren’t enough. This Swift Zeitgeist saddle bag has reflective elements and is easy to attach to any bike, though you may need supports to prop it up if you don’t want the bag to hit your legs as you ride.

2. Frame bag

This Revelate Designs frame bag has a magnetic closure, making it easy to access whatever you need during your ride quickly. This will especially come in handy when you need your camera at a moment’s notice for an incredible picture… or if you need to carry 18 plums. (We won’t judge.)

3. Panniers

A good set of panniers will last through many cycling trips—and if you’re planning to come to Cambria, where furry friends are always welcome, they may just be the pawfect vestibule for your pup.
