I have ordered myself a bike and now I need to know what other "essentials" I might need (profuse apologies if this has been covered already). I'm not keen on helmets, but other items I have bought are a puncture repair kit, a pump that fits onto the frame and a bottle and cage. Is there anything else I ought to consider, bearing in mind that I just want to enjoy cycling, not ride the Tour de France? Does all that lycra kit have a functional purpose or is it just for show? PS Thanks to everyone who gave such good advice on my last question.
