The Best Cycling Gear of 2018

As  summer  comes  into  full  swing,  cyclists  everywhere  are  putting  away  their  indoor  bikes  and  hitting  the  open  roads  (or  trails).  The Sports Techie community blog has a wide ranch of bike riders with some enjoying the latest and greatest sports tech driven cycling products while others go low tech and ride with one gear and unfortunately, no helmet, although still fun.
