Say goodbye to winter with vintage bicycle lights

vintage bicycle lights

The recent mild weather has made us feel like British Summer Time can’t come soon enough. Of course, it’s not quite time to put away the winter riding gear, but what better way to wave goodbye to wet and cold roads than with a set of classic bicycle lights?

LED technology has spawned a bewildering choice of bicycle lights, the brightness and complexity of which increases by the year.  Thankfully, summer riding offers a chance to escape the lighting arms race and enjoy a little old school illumination.

ETA cycle insurance

ETA cycle insurance offers a sympathetic policy on storage. For example, as long as a shed door is locked the bicycles stored within do not require any further security. In addition, the policy covers stolen quick-release components and for added peace of mind, claims are handled in-house. Furthermore, bikes are never devalued, no matter their age. Hardly surprising that The Good Shopping Guide voted us Britain’s most ethical insurance company 2016.
