1. A bottle cage and a bottle
Most of Velec e-bike already have the inserts needed to install a bottle cage. The 2 screws are standard and will fit any bottle cage you like. In addition to a color-match with your e-bike, what you should look for when purchasing a bottle cage is it's function. Many models exist to fit different needs. For example, if your frame is small and you don't have much space for a water bottle, you may choose a side load bottle cage. Or if you are the kind of cyclist that always forget your water bottle, then an adjustable bottle cage may be the best choice for you, since the bottles you'll find on the go are different sizes!
2. A Bike Bell
If you are riding a lot on cycle paths, or in urban areas, you know that being seen is very important. Sometimes, being heard can be very nice too! Bike bells come in different shapes and styles. From the minimalist to the extra-funky-animal-shaped ones, you'll have plenty of choices.
3. A Good Lock
Don't cheap out on a bike lock. Either you are going to work or to school with your e-bike, or you lock it outside the time of quick grocery shopping, the last thing you want is to get your e-bike stolen.

Your e-bike is equipped with a rear rack : you better take this opportunity to load your stuff on it! It is so comfortable to ride without a backpack anyway! Many choices, from the trunk bag to the double carriers exists to fill your needs. First, you got to decide what you want to carry : groceries? a laptop? an extra jacket?
