Although everyone has probably seen a person on a bike for the standard backpack, the many sizes and styles of cycling bags can suit your carrying requirements better and more comfortably. This is especially true if you are on a particularly long ride or commute to and from work on your bicycle. In these cases, multiple cycling bags may be necessary. Read on to explore the many options of bags available to decide which ones are right for your habits and requirements.
Cycling bags come in three main styles: backpacks, saddlebags and small shaped bags that strapped to various parts of the bike frame. Of course, some people who ride their bicycle could also carry a cross test messenger bag or even a cloth briefcase, but those are not specific bags.
Backpack style cycling bags tend to be slimmer and more streamlined than ones designed for school or camping. They fit neatly to the riders back to minimize drag as the person leans over the handlebars. This also helps keep the weight in the bags spread evenly to reduce shoulder and back strain.
Saddlebags are a type of cycling bags that attach over the back part or center of the bicycle frame. These are very similar to the small shaped bags that usually use Velcro or snap closures to attach bags to the metal securely. These cycling bags are made from weatherproof and rip stop fabric so whatever is inside stays safe and try even if you have to ride your bicycle through a puddle.
