Audax UK membership and a bivvy bag.
OS maps and friends with encyclopaedic knowledge of local bridleways (and chip shops) too.
Dynamo lights too, but they're a bit pricey.
I pretty much regret every other bike-related/specific purchase I've made in the last couple of years.
Pompino with 35c tyres.
So great to have a bike you can take off road a bit, hop off curbs, don't care about locking up and generally replicate what it was like to have a bike when you were 12.
Dynamo lights and mudguards, doubt I would have cycled half as much this year without them......also disc brakes on the commuter bike.
My sample sale Rapha Paul Smith city jacket (RIP)
Crabon SMP copy
Rapha merino beanie for winter (sale of course)
SKS longboard mudguards
23mm rims with 25c tyres/low psi. So much comfier than 23c at 110 psi.
Assos chamois cream. Stings your arsehole sometimes but saves your gooch from infected follicles.
This jumper, I think it might be made with black magic. I've worn it practically every day this autumn, even when it went down below 0 while cycling home at night, never not been comfortably warm. Little bit pricy, but it's practically bullet proof, and amazing to wear.
I sometimes wonder if I couldn't have made a fortune in marketing.
