Father of 3 and Husband of 1. I have been developing professionally with Microsoft technology since 1994, and as a hobbiest before then. Now most of my time is taken up with people and project management - alas. Regular cycling commuter who also enjoys running.

comment What are the most important accessories for a new biker to get?
Fair point @PeteH. I was assuming the repair kit would include tyre lever. Like you I always take the repair kit and a spare inner tube.

@none - someone goes out of their way to write a comprehensive answer to your request and you call them an idiot. Folks here are usually polite and helpful and don't resort to name calling.
