Writing this three days before the summer solstice, I look out the window. It’s raining hard.
Hey ho. At least I know my bags are as 100% waterproof as Gore-tex, so I’m confident the stuff I’ll be carrying in my panniers will be totally dry when I get home this evening.
Britain’s biggest waterproof bicycle bags boutique
We have a strong hunch that the Bike Co-op offers the widest range of 100% waterproof bicycle bags you’ll find anywhere in the UK.
Offering the means to keep your sandwiches, change of clothing and laptop bone-dry is the least we can do, given we see ourselves as a socially responsible company committed to looking after the real needs of cyclists. After all, we are based in Scotland. Plus we have shops in Newcastle, Manchester and Leeds – cities where summer rain doesn’t come as a shock.
Our waterproof bag range includes rarities, such as the especially cycling-smart Oxford Rucsacs (from £39.99), which are as reflective as they are waterproof.
Oxford Aqua 12 Backpack £39.99
If you would rather your bike took the load rather than your back, our own Revolution Adventure Welded bags are our all-time best selling rear panniers.
