Wear-This-All-Black-on-the-Bike-new
All black everything might not work on the bike at night, but it’s highly effective for contrast if you happen to be riding during the day when it’s a little bit cold out and there might be some snow on the ground. Other than a daily cruiser that will have no problems getting through the changing seasons, what else do you need? Start with a quality jacket, a good backpack, some built-to-last layers and some accessories that will get you through everything. Just remember to bring your lights if you’re riding in the dark or low visibility.

Finding a belt that fits exactly right when your weight fluctuates is impossible–unless you’re wearing a Mission Belt. Mission Belts use a unique ratchet buckle that adjusts every 1/4″, which means a comfortable, easy-to-adjust fit every time. Their full-grain Italian leather collection includes seven options, so there’s a good-looking, high-quality Mission Belt for every occasion. As if that wasn’t enough, $1 from every belt sold goes to their “Mission” of fighting poverty with micro loans through a partnership with Kiva. To date, they’ve loaned over $4.1 million in over 75 countries. Fits perfectly. Fights poverty.
