Bell's Muni helmet is tricked out with loads of safety features including a mount for a rear-view mirror, built-in back lights and reflective tape. Its bright green colour also makes it next to impossible for other riders and drivers to miss on the road ($90, Broom Wagon Cyclery, 701 Danforth, 647-352-6200, broomwagoncyclery.com).
Make your presence heard in traffic with Samui's Air Zound horn. Stash the refillable air reservoir in your water bottle holder, mount the horn on your handlebars and get ready to blast out 120 decibels of watch-where-you're-fucking-going noise ($19, Mountain Equipment Co-op, 400 King West, 416-340-2667, mec.ca).
U-locks get all the bike-securing buzz, but Abus's Winner lock is equally hardy thanks to its heavy-duty chain. It's also a more flexible format in case you have to attach your wheels to something other than a city post ($89.95, Curbside Cycle, 412 Bloor West, 416-920-4933, curbside.on.ca).
