Best Bike Gadgets

May is National Bike Month, which is a month long holiday that I can totally get behind. Over at Design*Sponge, we just threw a bike party to celebrate. And I ride my bike to work nearly everyday, and there are few gadgets that can certainly make your life easier. My favorite gadget is my bike computer. I love keeping track of my speed (and racing against myself! Yea, I’m a little geeky like that!). When you’re a New York commuter and competing for street space with both pedestrians and cars, there’s almost no gadget that is more helpful than a little bell. It’s a simple and effective way to let people know you’re coming! Whether you ride to commute to work, for pleasure or for exercise, a few choice gadgets can make your ride much smoother! Do you have a favorite bike gadget? -Amy Azzarito
