What a year! If 2020 had one positive thing going for it, it was definitely that we spent more time on our bikes than usual. Hand on heart: how many of you discovered (daily) cycling for yourselves in 2020?! We definitely want to keep up this newfound cycling energy and therefore have some sporty resolutions for the new year. We'll tell you our resolutions and give you tips so that you can get off to a speedy start in the - firstly cold - new year on your bike!
RESOLUTION #1: BIKE TO WORK
We think public transportation is totally 2020. So grab your bike, get going first thing in the morning and start your day actively! To avoid freezing on cold January mornings, be sure to get the right jacket. For example, the AGU Heated Thermo Jacket LED. This jacket has an integrated heating system with three temperature settings - the batteries last up to six hours! So 'it's too cold' is no longer a valid excuse! Thanks to the LED light on the back, you are also optimally visible in traffic on dark mornings.
Are you looking for a more elegant alternative for your daily rides? Then the wind- and waterproof AGU Clean jacket is YOUR perfect winter jacket! The AGU Clean combines timeless design and smart details.
RESOLUTION #2: TAKE THE BIKE MORE OFTEN IN EVERYDAY LIFE
Whether it's grocery shopping or a quick trip to the post office, you'll not only save a lot of time without the hassle of searching for a parking spot and dealing with traffic jams, but you'll also get some fresh air and get active at the same time. Most purchases can be easily stowed in appropriate bike bags, such as the AGU Shelter Clean bike bag. This bag s available in different sizes, super easy to assemble, wind and waterproof and has a removable shoulder strap, so you can wear it comfortably off the bike.
RESOLUTION #3: MORE SPORTS ACTIVITY IN THE FRESH AIR
In 2020, we realized that sports activity - especially in the fresh air - is the best way to clear your head and relax. So for the new year, we've resolved to get out in the air on a regular basis - and cycling is pretty perfect for that.
But admittedly: When it rains - which is often the case in winter - it’s sometimes hard to find motivation for cycling. That's why we designed the AGU SEQ jacket. This jacket is a real highlight: it is a combination of rain jacket and poncho! The practical features and stylish look make the SEQ the perfect companion for your daily rides - no matter what the weather!
RESOLUTION #4: NEVER RIDE WITHOUT A HELMET!
Health is our most important asset. That's why we should always protect ourselves - and when it comes to cycling, we start with our heads. Are you more the sporty type and looking for an aerodynamic helmet for fast tours? Then try the Strato HiVis helmet. This one is a real flyweight at 240g and has 20 vents.
For daily rides in the city, we recommend a helmet with integrated light, such as the Cit-E LED helmet for better visibility.
RESOLUTION #5: MAKE A CONTRIBUTION TO THE ENVIRONMENT
Cycling is without question the most environmentally friendly mode of transportation. Therefore: DO SOMETHING GOOD FOR THE ENVIRONMENT AND GET ON YOUR BICYCLE!
Did you know that the AGU Greensphere collection consists exclusively of products made from 100% recycled PET bottles? For example, the AGU DWR bike bag. By the way, the waterproof bag is available in great colors, like sunny yellow and a nice shade of green!
