Why just cycle when you could cycle and sip at the same time? This bike cup holder, made of leather, fits tightly around your coffee cup to ensure no spillages, and the stainless steel clip hooks over the handlebar. It's a given, however, that caution should be exercised when travelling with hot liquids.

Basket case

While rattan baskets look great on bikes, a metal sort is arguably more suitable for a daily commute. The FastRider handlebar Mare basket is both stylish and functional, and is made from fine meshed metal with a carrying capacity of 5kg. It's detachable with Fast Lock handlebar pen system.

Jeans genius

A pair of commuter jeans will help you look the business even when riding your bike. The Levi's Commuter slim-fit trouser for men is engineered for moving. It features a water-repellent finish as well as reflective tape to let you be seen. Women's options include jeans from the Vulpine and Rapha labels.

Feet first

Shoe covers protect feet from showers, cold and everything else that the Irish weather may throw at you. At the higher end, Rainfall neoprene overshoes, available in sizes S/M and L/XL reach up the calf; are water resistant and also have reflective details. But you can pick up shoe covers for as little as €15
