Riding to work throughout the year in the UK means that you're guaranteed to ride through some pretty heavy rain from time to time. We'd call those conditions challenging, but not impossible.

Review: Altura Thunderstorm City 30 - 4/5

Along with a good jacket, waterproof overtrousers and a set of mudguards, a waterproof backpack is an essential piece that will allow you to continue to ride to work, no matter what the weather is doing.

45% off Alé PRR 2.0 Strada Winter Cycling Jacket

Altura's Thunderstorm City 30-litre backpack features an open design internally, with just a 13" laptop sleeve for separation. We find these large spaces to be perfect as they're much more flexible and able to carry awkward and bulky items.

40% off DMT Road and MTB Shoes

A roll-top design, combined with taped seams and a TPU waterproof coating over the ripstop fabric results in a waterproof rating of IPX6, easily enough to keep your stuff dry on a wet commute.

28% off Exposure Joystick MK13 1000-Lumen Front Light

The draft back venting system means that come the warm summer days, you won't get a horrendously sweaty back. The system is also pretty good at supporting heavier loads and there are chest and waist straps for when you need to keep the bag tightly on your back.

Up to 60% off Ex-Display GoPro Hero Session and Hero6 Black 4K Action Cameras

Down at the lower part of the backpack, there is a loop for a rear light and to increase visibility, there is reflective print all around the bag.

About Cycle Republic

On December the 12th we opened our first store at Euston Tower, London. The 3000 sq. ft shop is packed with the latest bikes, clothing, accessories and parts. In an industry first, courtesy bikes are made available to customers whose bikes are in the workshop for an extended period of time.

2015 saw us open our first shops outside London, with new locations in Norwich, Manchester, Bristol, and Nottingham alongside three new shops in the capital. Alongside store expansion, our product range continues to grow with the addition of the likes of Haibike.

In an extremely busy year, we launched a brand-new transactional website, offered customers an additional payment type, with the introduction of Cyclescheme, all whilst continuing to add to our bikes and accessories categories. Bloomsbury, Fenchurch, Purley and Leeds open their doors for the first time.

We’re delighted to become stockists of premium, Italian road brand Wilier Triestina. Scott road, mountain, electric and hybrid bikes also become available to cyclists. We ink a deal to retail BMC bikes from Autumn 2019.
