Basil Gives Three Reasons To Ride in Autumn

It’s autumn! That means it’s getting colder, the rain’s a more common sight and the nights are drawing in. It’s high time to curl up on the couch with a cup of hot tea and get into the spirit of all things cosy. But at Basil, they also think that autumn is something special when it comes to cycling in the great outdoors. That's why Bicle gives the floor to Basil with a blog about three reasons to ride in autumn. Their bike accessories help remain more visible in the dark, give an extra push when it’s windy, while also offering handy ways to transport stuff while keeping it dry when it’s raining. Cycling through autumn has never been more stylish and practical! 

1. Enjoying nature

Autumn is undeniably one of the most beautiful seasons. Striking colours, the crackling of recently fallen leaves
underfoot and fresh breezes are just some of the things to look forward. There’s also the occasional chance of a rain shower to think about. If you’re worried about keeping your laptop, phone and other valuables dry while cycling, you’ll find plenty to get excited about at Basil. We’ve developed a range of new product ranges that offer 100% protection against water while cycling.
