Here are a few ideas to get you started. Have questions or need inspiration? Reach out I am happy to help.

Bike Rack for the Car – Getting the bicycle to the ride location doesn’t need to be a struggle. A bike rack will protect both the car and the bicycle while making the cyclists life easier. Not to mention the extra space inside the car for more cycling friends to come along. What we need to know. The make, model and year of the car. Does it have a receiver hitch? If so the size, 2 inch or 1 1/4″

Matching Jerseys – If you are giving a great cycling adventure how about matching jerseys for you and those joining you.

Handlebar Bag – These are invaluable for storing all of the important things you need to bring along. 

Daytime Lights – Motorcycles and cars have been using daytime lights for years. Now there are daytime lights for bicycles. They have proven to increase cyclists visibility to others while on the road.

Nutrition Products – These make great stocking stuffers. Your body being properly fueled during the ride is important.

Rear Bicycle Rack – Are you always looking for more space to bring stuff along with you? A rear rack will allow the use of a rack trunk or panniers. Giving you plenty of space to bring lunch, store some extra clothing or even enough to spend an overnight.

Rack Trunk – Need some extra space? These are ideal to place lunch in, an extra layer or two of clothing and don’t forget your camera to document the day.

Panniers – Planning a longer adventure? Commuting to work. Panniers offer more space to bring your stuff. Planning an overnight ride like the C&O and or the GAP. You’ll need panniers.

About Ernest

Ernest is the owner of the Crofton Bike Doctor located in the Village of Waugh Chapel Shopping Center. Ernest has been in the industry since 1989 when he first started to work at the Bike Doctor of Arnold. During that time I developed a love for cycling and retail. I graduated from the University of Maryland and live and ride locally.

I enjoy riding off road and on the road as well as doing a little bike touring. As a teenager I did a trip in Maine and then over to Novia Scotia which helped cement my love for riding. Since then I have done tours in the Canyons of Utah as well as several trips along the C&O Canal. Today I have both mountain bikes and road bikes that I enjoy riding. One of the most exciting things now is my wife is beginning to develop a passion for riding and we have begun mountain bike together as well as some light road riding.
