Our favourite city rides will ensure you arrive with a smile on your face and flies on your teeth

As the days get shorter and winter draws near, most are wrapping up warm and finding themselves a cosy spot by the radiator. But not you though, right?

No, you're one of the brave few who sees the frosty pavements as a welcome challenge, dons their Lycra and sets off on their pedal-powered commute with the icy wind in their hair.

But as any arctic adventurer knows, you'll need the best tools for the job if you're going to get to your destination before the frostbite sets in.

Fortunately, we at Stuff have put together a list of our favourite urban bikes and accessories to help you on your way.
