Once you learn to ride a bike and the training wheels come off, it becomes second nature. Whether you’re pedaling down Pacific Coast Highway on a beach cruiser, battling cars on a road bike, or tearing down cliffsides on a mountain bike, the act of cycling feels so natural. Bicycles are engrained in most cultures, and because of this familiarity, we often don’t realize that they’re not all vegan. Look down at your handlebars or your seat. Most are made with leather.

Before you clip in, run through this list of vegan bicycle accessories and equip your ride with the cruelty-free necessities.

7 Vegan Bicycle Accessories for Those Hiding From Hide


1. Comforting Balanced Black Vegan Leather Bike Seat

If you purchase a bicycle from a standard bike shop or sporting goods store, chances are you’ll be sitting on leather. Swap it out for this ergonomically designed vegan leather seat. It’s slightly wider than most sports seats, but also more streamlined than the large beach cruiser variety, offering both comfort and cushion without the cruelty.
