When you're riding around on a bike in town, having a bicycle basket is a necessity. Where else would you put your groceries, purse, etc.? The basket is key to having a good time when riding around town.
There are many different places you can look when finding a bicycle basket. For one, you can go to a bicycle shop and pick one out there. A second option, and less expensive one at that, is to go to second hand shops. They usually have the same size baskets and at far cheaper prices! Children's stores also sometimes have bicycle baskets.

Having a bike computer isn't vital, but it sure is helpful. During long or short rides you can track your pace with speed, power, heart rate and other performance metrics. It sure beats doing an estimated guess halfway through the ride. Find a waterproof tracker and enjoy a ride in the rain.
