    I bought a bike today. Anything I should know about them?

    I haven't cycled for 10 years, since I was 15 in fact. I have recently been walking the 6 miles to and from work and wouldn't mind doing a longer route on a cycle as such. Road confidence shouldn't be an issue as they built a new road between my village and city where I work and they left the old road open (but blocked off to cars) for cyclists and walkers.

    What else should I buy? I know a helmet is fairly obvious but should I get any other specific clothing/lights/pump/bottle/bell?

    Its a hybrid bike but it will never see any off road action.

    If it helps its a Specialized Sirrus Elite 2012.

    Cheers in advance!
